LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit his first home run of the spring and Ryan Raburn had a two-run triple Wednesday in the Detroit Tigers’ 5-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Raburn tripled against Atlanta starter Brandon Beachy in the second inning. Beachy gave up four runs over two innings in his first start.

Cabrera, making the transition from first base to third base this spring, drove a pitch from Jairo Ascancio over the berm in the left field corner.

Rookie Jacob Turner walked four and didn’t make it through the second inning in his first start for the Tigers. But the Braves did not score until Drew Sutton tripled in the seventh.

Left-hander Andy Oliver pitched three shutout innings for Detroit.
