Braves lose both split-squad games in spring training
Gee gives up two runs in Mets' 5-3 win over Braves
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Dillon Gee allowed two runs and five hits in three innings as the New York Mets defeated an Atlanta Braves split squad 5-3 on Friday.
The projected No. 5 starter for New York struck out two and walked none as he concentrated on throwing his cut fastball to the Braves' lefty-heavy lineup.
Atlanta starter Randall Delgado pitched three innings, allowing two runs and three hits. It was an improvement over his first start of the spring, in which he allowed four runs in one inning.
Ronny Cedeno put the Mets up early with a two-run single, and Matt Den Dekker broke a 3-all tie with a two-run double in the eighth inning.
Atlanta's Martin Prado had two doubles among his three hits. \
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless, hitless seventh inning.
Braves' Teheran rebounds from six-homer start
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Hoping to earn a spot in Atlanta's rotation, Julio Teheran allowed one run and three hits over three innings as a Braves split squad lost 3-0 to the New York Yankees on Friday.
The 21 year old struck out three, including Robinson Cano, and walked one in his second spring training start.
Teheran was tagged for six home runs in just two innings last Sunday when the Braves were beat 18-3 by the Detroit Tigers.
Freddy Garcia gave up one hit over three innings for the Yankees. The right-hander had two strikeouts and one walk.
Nick Swisher had an opposite-field RBI double to deep left off Teheran during the first.
