Brandon Beachy pitched three no-hit innings in his second start since having shoulder surgery in September and B.J. Upton doubled among his two hits for the Atlanta braves, who tied the Philadelphia Phillies 2-2 Wednesday.
Coming off October surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, he allowed one hit and needed only 15 pitches, 11 of them strikes, in his two innings. Justin Upton singled with one out in the second inning, but was erased on a double play.
Strasburg, coming off October surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, allowed one hit and needed only 15 pitches — 11 strikes. Justin Upton singled with one out in the second inning, but was erased on a double play.
B.J. Upton was suffering through the most dreadful season of his career and little brother Justin was in the same Atlanta clubhouse, a perfect shoulder to lean on as he navigated through the unfathomable time.
A team-by-team look at the National League East entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
B.J. Upton would like a do-over on his debut season with the Braves.

Brian McCann has reached a deal with the New York Yankees that will pay him $85 million over five years, with a vesting option for the sixth.
They play in a lopsided dome from a best-forgotten era in stadium construction.
By winning two of three against Washington to complete a successful homestand, the Atlanta Braves confirmed what already was obvious: The NL East race is over. The Braves just can't officially announce it.
There's no better reminder that the long-dormant race for the National League East's pennant is finally alive than Scott Hairston. No, that's not a misprint.
They might want to consider setting up a wind farm at Turner Field, because there sure is a stiff breeze coming out of that place most nights.
The Nationals' slow offensive start has been concerning to some, worrisome to others and downright nerve-fraying to certain factions of the fanbase. For plenty, it's been maddening to watch them strike out, swinging or looking, so often. To see them come up small in large situations. To hit the ball on the screws, and right at a waiting fielder.
Chipper Jones retired last year, Bobby Cox the season before that.
"What could anyone really say to me? None of them had gone through what I had gone through last year," he said. "Nobody could relate, so I dealt with it on my own."
"It was difficult, but I'm kind of a loner," Upton told The Associated Press, his gaze fixed skyward as he sat in the dugout on a recent dreary day in spring camp. "I handle things my own way. That's just kind of the way it is."
