Chipper and Huddy come up big in win

Not to be outdone, the vets got in on the action Thursday in a spring training game with the Cardinals. Chipper Jones hit his first homer of the spring, and Tim Hudson threw 5 strong innings, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits, as the Braves beat the Cards 5-3.

Kris Medlen threw 2 innings, surrendering a run but also posting 4 strikeouts. At the plate, Melky Cabrera and Omar Infante had 2 hits apiece. Nate McLouth went hitless again today. As Dave O’Brien reports, he’s now 1-31 for the spring, with 12 strike outs during that time. Maybe McLouth is not cut out for the leadoff role, after all.

The Braves are now 11-5 in Grapefruit League play. They’ll take on the Tigers tomorrow night.
