    Braves score a walk-off win."Ray-Patrick Didder scored the
    winning run on a fielding error by Phil Gosselin in the bottom of the ninth to
    give the Atlanta Braves a 5-4 come-from-behind win over the Philadelphia
    Phillies. Josh Donaldson and Kevin Gausman made their spring debuts for Atlanta.
    Donaldson popped up to second in his first at bat and walked in second. He made
    a nice play snagging a line drive in the first inning that saved a run. Gausman
    was a bit rusty allowing four hits and three runs in 1 1/3 innings. The Phillies
    plated a pair of runs in the first against Gausman on a sacrifice fly by Nick
    Williams and an RBI single by Sean Rodriguez. They extended the lead to 3-0 in
    the second on run-scoring single by Aaron Altherr. Andrew Knapp made it 4-0 in
    the fifth with a home run off of Max Fried in the fifth. The Braves began their
    comeback in the bottom half of the fifth when Cristian Pache connected on his
    first home run of the spring to cut the deficit to 4-2. Pache finished 1-for-3
    in the game and is hitting .412 on the spring. Raffy Lopez doubled home Ryan
    LaMarre in the sixth to make it 4-3 and Didder homered in the seventh to tie the
    game. Pedro Florimon singled to lead off the ninth but was erased on a grounder
    by Didder who beat the throw at first. Didder stole second as Pache struck out
    before Austin Riley’s grounder got through Gosselin to give the Braves the win.
    Fried allowed two hits and one run and struck out four over 3 2/3 innings. Sam
    Freeman Paul
    O'Neill Jersey
    , Chad Sobotka and Grant Dayton combined for 3 1/3
    scoreless innings of relief. The Braves will travel over to Lakeland on Saturday
    where they will take on the Detroit Tigers. Sean Newcomb is scheduled to get the
    start while Detroit will counter with right-hander Michael Fulmer. Four top 100

    Biggest Cuts of Spring Training YetSteve Mitchell-USA TODAY SportsThe Future is
    now.Not just for top prospects Forrest Whitley, Kyle Tucker, J.B
    Bukauskas ,
    and Corbin Martin, who were sent to the minors camp this afternoon.They were
    joined by Rogelio Armenteros, Brandon Bielak and Alex DeGoti.It was not expected
    that any of these players would make the opening day roster, but the early
    timing of the cuts in the case of many of these is a little surprising.In
    action ,
    all the pitchers on this list were having a good Spring. Top 10 MLB prospect
    Whitley threw 8 innings, with a 2.25 ERA and 11 k’s. Bukauskas and one of the
    biggest surprises of the camp, Bielak, each pitched 7 innings with a 1.29 ERA.
    Martin threw 6.2 innings with a 2.70
    ERA ,
    and Armenteros had 5 innings with a 1.80 ERA.Outfielder Tucker’s Spring was a
    bit disappointing, hitting .757 OPS in 25 AB’s. Shortstop DeGoti hit.563 in 28
    AB’s.As members of the 40 man roster, Tucker and Armenteros were optioned. The
    rest were reassigned.
