|Floyd, Hanson Pitch Well in Spring Wrapups
|ATLANTA (AP) _ Gavin Floyd and Tommy Hanson look ready for the real games.
Hanson, one of baseball's most promising pitchers, threw four solid innings for Atlanta in his final tuneup of the spring. Floyd was even better, working four scoreless innings as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Braves 7-2 in an exhibition game Friday night.
Floyd shut down the Braves on four hits. He had one ugly start in five official spring appearances; otherwise, the right-hander surrendered only three earned runs in 16 innings. Hanson allowed a first-inning run and wrapped up the spring with a 2.45 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 18 1-3 innings.
