KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Derek Lowe struck out seven in six sharp
innings for the Atlanta Braves on Thursday, but the Toronto Blue
Jays rallied for a 7-5 victory.

Lowe gave up a run and five hits without walking a batter and
lowered his spring ERA to 3.27. He has 24 strikeouts in 22 innings.

Braves rookie Jordan Shafer, competing for the job in center
field, had a triple and single to raise his average to .383. He
also threw out a runner at the plate in the fifth inning.

But the Atlanta bullpen blew a 5-1 lead, giving up three runs in
the eighth inning and three in the ninth. The damage was done
against Boone Logan and rookie Kris Medlen.

Kelly Johnson had a double and two singles for the Braves.
Chipper Jones drove in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly and a
single.
