Tim Hudson allowed a long home run to Prince Fielder, but Juan Francisco's three run shot off Rick Porcello helped the Atlanta Braves to a 5-3 victory Wednesday in Lakeland.
Hudson pitched three innings and yielded two runs and two hits. Porcello, competing for one of the final spots in the Tigers' rotation, allowed three hits in two innings. Reigning AL MVP Miguel Cabrera had a single. The Tigers' February record is now 2-4.
