LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Detroit newcomers Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan each pitched a scoreless inning Thursday, helping the Tigers beat the Atlanta Braves 5-2.

Chamberlain and Nathan were brought in to solidify a Tigers bullpen that struggled through much last season. Chamberlain, the right-hander who foundered with the Yankees in 2013, had a strikeout. Nathan, who had 43 saves for Texas last year, struck out two. It was the Tigers debut for both.

Rick Porcello started for the Braves and allowed one run in two innings. He struck out three.

Kris Medlin allowed one run in two innings in his spring debut for the Braves. Jason Heyward hit a long homer off of Duane Below in his second at-bat.
