KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Eric Stults celebrated his return to the major leagues, allowing one run in five innings to lead the Atlanta Braves past the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Saturday in a spring training wrapup.
Stults has pitched for three other major league teams and was brought to Braves camp as a non-roster invitee. He was 8-17 for the San Diego Padres last season.
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel allowed his first run of the spring when Chris Parmelee homered off him in the ninth.
Freddie Freeman hit his third home run for the Braves and finished exhibition play with a .339 batting average. A.J. Pierzynski had two more hits to end the spring at .366.
