KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Paul Maholm pitched two-hit ball for six innings and Juan Francisco homered to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 4-0 victory over a New York Yankees split-squad on Saturday.
Maholm, who struck out four and walked one, has not allowed a run over 14 2-3 innings in his past three spring starts.
Francisco's two-run drive in the fifth inning off David Phelps was his fourth homer of the spring, and the third baseman also had a single.
Phelps, who is competing for a spot in the Yankees rotation, had a 0.64 ERA in his previous four starts, but he allowed seven hits and four runs in five innings. He struck out six and walked one.
Justin Upton, hitless in his previous nine at_bats, had two hits for the Braves. The Yankees finished with just three hits.
