The spring training roundup …
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. ó Livan Hernandez strengthened his grip on the No. 5 spot in the New York Mets’ rotation with five strong innings Wednesday in a 7-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves.
Hernandez scattered five hits and allowed just one run, striking out three.
A pair of prospects led the Braves. Jordan Schafer went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run, while starting pitcher Tommy Hanson allowed three hits and two unearned runs in four innings to lower his spring ERA to 2.45.
Giants 8, Cubs 6
At Mesa, Ariz., NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum gave up four runs and seven hits, including a first-pitch homer to Alfonso Soriano, in 32/3 innings.
Rangers 9, Padres 4
At Peoria, Ariz., Josh Hamilton went 3-for-3 including a bunt single with a runner on base during a four-run first inning. Hamilton is hitting .439 with 15 RBIs in 14 spring training games. Brandon McCarthy threw four hitless innings to keep the Padres winless against AL teams this spring (0-8-2).

Arizona’s Doug Davis cruised in his return to the mound after missing a start with tightness in his biceps. He held the Brewers without a hit in 21/3 scoreless innings.
Rays 7, Reds 3
