Dan Uggla and Evan Gattis each hit a three-run homer, Mike Minor threw four scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves beat a team comprised of the organization's Future Stars 10-0 on Saturday in an exhibition game at Trustmark Park.

Chris Johnson had a solo shot for the Braves, who played their final game before Monday's home opener against Philadelphia. Andrelton Simmons and Jason Heyward started the game with back-to-back doubles as Atlanta built a 5-0 lead in the first inning.

Minor gave up singles to the first two batters he faced, but then retired 11 straight. The left-hander struck out two and walked none in an encouraging outing after posting a 6.26 ERA in six spring starts.

Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel worked a scoreless fifth.
