Hudson fine, Venters hurt as Braves top Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Tim Hudson pitched four innings in his final spring tuneup while Braves reliever Jonny Venters left early with a sprained elbow Tuesday in Atlanta's 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Hudson allowed one run. He is set to start the opener next Monday at home against Philadelphia.

Venters exited in the sixth after hurting his left elbow in his first appearance since March 13, when he walked four. The lefty was listed as day-to-day.

Juan Francisco hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth off Brayan Villarreal. Ramiro Pena also homered for the Braves.

Don Kelly went 4 for 4 with a home run and two doubles for the Tigers.

Shawn Hill started for the Tigers and allowed two earned runs in five innings. He was sent to AAA Toledo after his outing.
