LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Tom Glavine made his second start of the spring for the Atlanta Braves today in a 5-4 exhibition victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Glavine allowed two runs in two-and-two-thirds innings. He struck out two but walked three.

The left-hander said wasn't displeassed. He said he used all his pitches and just needs to get more consistent.

Braves manager Bobby Cox had nothing but good things to say about the veteran who returned to the Braves from the New York Mets over the winter. Cox said Glavine "looked great" and only allowed one hard-hit ball.

The Tigers scored two in the second, but the Braves erupted for five in the fifth off Armando Gallaraga. The Tigers scored twice in the eighth to cut it to 5-4, but never got a chance to bat in the bottom of the ninth because of heavy rain.

Dontrelle Willis started for Detroit. Willis, acquired from the Florida Marlins along with third baseman Miguel Cabrera, pitched three innings and allowed two hits. He walked one and struck out three Atlanta batters.
