Braves fight back but fall to Tigers 7-5

Braves rally but come up short against Tigers More suspect pitching and some shaky defense plagued the Atlanta Braves today in a 7-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers. Bartolo Colon got the start for the Braves and was tagged for eight hits and six earned runs over 3 2⁄3 innings. Colon allowed an RBI double to Stephen Moya in the first and was stung for four runs in the second with the big blow coming on a two-run single by Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos.

Colon, Newcomb help Braves top Phillies 3-2

Good outings from Bartolo Colon and Sean Newcomb combined with key hits by Nick Markakis and Micah Johnson to give the Braves a Grapefruit League win. Sure, it’s just Spring Training, but you never want to have an eight-game losing streak hanging over your head. Fortuitously, then, the Braves were finally able to stop their seven-game Grapefruit League skid with a 3-2 win over the Phillies. The big takeaway from this game has to be the effective pitching by perpetual entertainment machine Bartolo Colon, and two very solid innings of work by Sean Newcomb. Colon allowed just three...
