KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - David Hale provided a bright spot for the Atlanta Braves' beleaguered rotation, allowing one run in four innings while striking out three to lead the Braves past the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-1, on Friday.

With Braves starters Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen possibly facing Tommy John surgery and Mike Minor sidelined and possibly out for opening day, Hale pithed impressively. He was 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts for Atlanta last season.

Chris Archer went 4 2-3 innings in his longest stint of the spring for Tampa Bay, allowing a run while striking out six and lowering his spring ERA to 0.90.

Joey Terdoslavich and Ernesto Mejia homered for Atlanta.
