Braves Pull Out Win Against Tigers In Pitcher's Duel

Atlanta pulled out a late win against the Tigers' bullpen Friday afternoon, scoring three runs in the last two innings to win 3-2.

Tom Glavine pitched four innings of scoreless ball for the Braves while Justin Verlander pitched seven innings of shutout ball. The 0-0 tie ended in the seventh inning when the Tigers' Matt Treanor hit a two-run home run off of Manny Acosta.

In the bottom of the eighth, Braves first baseman Greg Norton smacked a two-run double to tie the game and Martin Prado drove in David Ross with the game-winning run.

The Braves face the Yankees tomorrow afternoon.
