After earning a spot in Atlanta's rotation on Friday, Stults experienced little trouble against an Orioles lineup that featured Christian Walker, who ranks as Baltimore's top offensive prospect. Walker recorded a pair of hits, including the last of the three consecutive fifth-inning singles that Stults allowed for his only earned run of the game.
Atlanta relievers Andrew McKirahan and Jason Grilli made their final preparations for the regular season by tossing a scoreless inning. Chris Parmelee's seventh-inning single led to an unearned run that came with the assistance of an errant pickoff throw made by Mike Foltynewicz, who is slated to begin the year in Triple-A Gwinnett's starting rotation.
Parmelee homered against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth. It was the only run Kimbrel allowed in six spring innings.
