KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Atlanta's Tom Glavine and Detroit's Justin Verlander are looking to have bounce-back seasons, and each made strides to reaching their goals Friday.
Verlander threw seven scoreless innings and Glavine shut out the Tigers for four in the Braves' 3-2 victory.
Glavine, the two-time Cy Young Award winner with 305 wins, started a career-low 13 games last year, going 2-4 before his season was cut short by an elbow injury.
On Friday, the left-hander allowed three hits, walked none and struck out three in his second start of the spring.
Verlander, coming off a 17-loss season, gave up two hits while striking out three and walking one, and was named opening-day starter before the game.
