Braves Win Second Straight Spring Game Over Yanks

The Braves rode the power of three solo shots and stingy pitching past the Yankees, winning 3-2.

Casey Kotchman, Greg Norton and Brandon Jones all had solo shots and Jair Jurrjens went 3 2/3 innings and was charged with a run that Buddy Carlyle allowed to score. Including Carlyle's base stats, Atlanta had 5 1/3 innings of pitching where they allowed just two hits and no runs. Kris Medlen, Mariano Gomez, Luis Valdez and Zach Schreiber all had scoreless innings. Yunel Escobar was the only Brave with two hits.

The Braves will start with Tommy Hanson against the Phillies in tomorrow's game.

W - Buddy Carlyle (1-0)
L - Brett Tomko (0-1)
S - Zach Schreiber (1)
HR - Casey Kotchman (1)
Greg Norton (2)
Brandon Jones (1)
