Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb walked five but still earned a victory in an 8-7 victory over the Blue Jays Wednesday in Grapefruit League play.
Newcomb was the beneficiary of a five-run sixth inning just after he left for a pinch-hitter in the frame. He gave up two hits and three runs, all earned, with two strike outs.
The Braves trailed 3-1 after Kevin Pillar hit a three-run home run in the second inning off Newcomb.
Ronald Acuna and Andy Wilkins had RBI singles and Charlie Culberson drew a bases-loaded walk in the decisive inning. The Braves also scored twice on ground outs.
Acuna and Wilkins each went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in the game. Johan Camargo also had two hits.
