VIERA, Fla. (AP) - Derek Lowe worked four hitless innings and
the Atlanta Braves beat the winless Washington Nationals 5-2 Monday
Washington is 0-11, the majors' only winless team this spring.
Coming off a one-inning stint March 10 in which he was troubled
by a blister on his right foot - and gave up three runs and five
hits - the right-hander allowed only one baserunner. Washington's
Roger Bernadina reached in the second when first baseman Eric
Hinske dropped shortstop Yunel Escobar's throw.
Lowe (1-0) struck out six.
Martin Prado and Joe Thurston homered for the Braves.
Right-hander Garrett Mock (0-2) allowed two runs to Atlanta in
the first, then retired his final nine hitters. Mock struck out two
and has not yielded a walk in nine innings over three starts.
