Beachy, who found out a day earlier he had won a spot in the Atlanta rotation, struck out six and walked one while lowering his ERA to 1.13.
He pitched five scoreless innings against the Tigers last Saturday, giving up one hit.
Jones homered in the first inning off rookie left-hander Adam Wilk, who had posted a 0.71 ERA in a bid for a bullpen spot with the Tigers. The veteran third baseman has 15 RBIs and is batting .411 in Grapefruit League games.
Here’s a look at the Braves’ other game during the split-squad day for the club:
Phillies 3, Braves 1
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Joe Blanton blanked an Atlanta Braves split squad for six innings en route to a 3-1 win on Friday.
Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer in the first to give Blanton all the offense he would need.
Philadelphia third baseman Placido Polanco was 0 for 2 with a pair of groundouts in his first game since hyperextending his left elbow March 15.
He said afterward that he still wasn’t 100 percent but didn’t believe the injury would hold him back any longer.
Blanton, the fifth starter in Philadelphia’s ace-stacked rotation, retired his first eight batters, three by strikeout, and limited Atlanta to five hits. He struck out four and didn’t issue any walks.
