LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (March 13, 2015) – The Atlanta Braves continued a busy week of spring training baseball at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex with a 12-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Friday, March 13.

Making his second start of the spring, pitcher Mike Foltynewicz allowed five runs (one earned) and retired just two Tigers before he was relieved. Tigers’ centerfielder Anthony Gose tripled to start the game and scored on a ground out off the bat of designated hitter Jose Iglesias. Catcher James McCann and second baseman Josh Wilson both delivered RBI singles in the inning, giving the Tigers an early 5-0 advantage. Tigers’ starter Shane Greene threw three innings of hitless baseball in his second appearance of the spring. The Braves scored two runs in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by left fielder Zoilo Almonte and an RBI single by right fielder Cedric Hunter.

Country music artist Scotty McCreery, who won season 10 of American Idol, sang ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ during the seventh inning stretch.
