Baseball: Spring Training Roundup

Associated Press
The spring training roundup …
ATLANTA ó Nick Blackburn shut down Atlanta’s projected opening-day lineup during four scoreless innings but Mauro Gomez hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to give the Braves a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Twins in an exhibition.
Blackburn surrendered one hit and walked one. Helped by two double plays, the right-hander faced the minimum 12 batters.
Blackburn won his third straight start while lowering his spring ERA to 1.73. He was 10-12 in 2010 with a 5.42 ERA, the worst of his three full seasons in the Twins’ rotation.
Trailing 2-0, the Braves scored two unearned runs off Matt Capps in the ninth before winning the game on Gomez’s homer off former Atlanta pitcher Chuck James.
Yankees 2, Tigers 1
TAMPA, Fla.ó Alex Rodriguez drove in his 15th run of the exhibition season with a base-loaded walk and Freddy Garcia allowed one run in four innings for the Yankees.
Reds 8, Indians 3
GOODYEAR, Ariz. ó Bronson Arroyo shook off the effects of mononucleosis to pitch into the seventh inning for Cincinnati.
Arroyo allowed six hits over six innings, including two solo homers by Shin-Soo Choo. That’s nothing new. The Indians right fielder is a .500 (6 for 12) hitter in his career against Arroyo.
