Braves top Blue Jays, Mets in split-squad games

Braves top Blue Jays
    KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Brandon Beachy allowed two hits while striking out six over four innings and Dan Uggla homered as Atlanta beat Toronto, 5-3, in a split-squad game Saturday.
    Uggla homered in his third straight game. He connected with a man on in the sixth inning off Blue Jays prospect Deck McGuire.
    Beachy walked five in his previous start and came in with a 9.00 ERA. But he gave up only one walk and the Blue Jays' run against him came after a popup to shallow left field ended up a triple.
