Blue Jays Batter Braves' Bullpen, Pull Out Victory

Boone Logan and Kris Medlen did themselves no favors on Thursday. The Blue Jays scored six runs off of the two pitchers, pulling out a 7-5 victory.

The lefty Logan and righty Medlen combined to allow six runs in the final two innings, erasing a four-run lead for the Braves.

Derek Lowe started the game for Atlanta and allowed five singles. He didn't walk a single batter, allowed just one run and registered seven strikeouts. He also contributed to his own cause with a two-run single.

Leadoff hitter Kelly Johnson registered three hits in three at-bats, including a double, and scored two runs. Yunel Escobar went 2-3 with a double and a run scored and also stole a base. Chipper Jones had a two-run single. Jordan Schafer went 2-4 and scored a run. In his last spring at-bat with the big club, Freddie Freeman had an RBI single.

The Braves play the Tigers tomorrow.

W - Jeremy Accardo (1-1)
L - Kris Medlen (0-1)
S - Zach Dials (1)
