Javier Vazquez made his first start since the World Baseball Classic, going 4 2/3 innings. He allowed four hits and two walks, but only allowed one run. He struck out six batters.
Brandon Inge hit a solo home run in the first off of Vazquez to give the Tigers a quick 1-0 lead. The Braves responded with three in the third and two in the fifth. Detroit got one back in the sixth, but there was no scoring the rest of the way, and the Braves earned their 15th win of the spring.
Greg Norton had two hits and scored two runs. Omar Infante went 2-4 with a double and a triple. Matt Diaz drove in three runs with a 2-3 day and also scored a run. Three other Braves had a double. Gerald Laird and Adam Everett had two hits each for the Tigers.
Rafael Soriano, Boone Logan and Jerome Gamble all had scoreless innings for the Braves. Starter Jeremy Bonderman, Ryan Perry, Ricardo Rincon and Clay Rapada all had scorless stints for the Tigers. Dontrelle Willis was tagged with all the runs in the loss.
