ATLANTA (AP) Sean Newcome pitched four innings in his final tuneup for the season and Pedro Florimon hit a ninth-inning grand slam off Jimmy Herget to lift the Atlanta Braves over the Cincinnati Reds 7-5 Tuesday in the last exhibition game for each team.
Newcomb, a 25-year-old left-hander, allowed two runs and three hits in four innings. He has a leadership role in a rotation that includes rookies Kyle Wright and Bryse Wilson.
Mike Foltynewicz, a 2018 All-Star who was expected to be the team's top starter, is recovering from a sore elbow and Kevin Gausman from a sore shoulder. Max Fried, a 2018 rookie, is the probable No. 5 starter.
