Willis, Podsednik help Phillies beat Braves

AP - Sports

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) Scott Podsednik hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning and Dontrelle Willis tossed a scoreless inning, helping a Philadelphia Phillies split squad beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4 on Thursday.

Matt Diaz and Dan Uggla hit solo homers for the Braves. Jair Jurrjens had a rough outing, allowing four runs and nine hits in four innings.

Podsednik had one of six run-scoring singles for the Phillies. He's competing for a roster spot and could earn playing time in left field.

Willis had an encouraging outing after getting rocked and leaving his last appearance because of arm tightness and fatigue. Willis, a former 22-game winner, is trying to resurrect his career in a new role as a lefty specialist in the bullpen.
