BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Chipper Jones and Greg Norton homered and the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Friday in a spring training game.
For Pittsburgh, Tom Gorzelanny took the first step in putting his disappointing 2008 season behind him. The Pirates' left-hander worked out of a jam and tossed two scoreless innings.
Last season, Gorzelanny spent much of the year at Triple-AIndianapolis.
Atlanta's Kenshin Kawakami pitched two solid innings in his spring debut. The 33-year-old right-hander retired six of seven batters he faced, allowing just a single by Adam LaRoche, and struck out one.
