Tigers Win Both Games Tuesday

LAKELAND, Fla. — Miguel Cabrera made his first base hit this spring a big one, clearing the bases on a third-inning double that put the Tigers up for good in a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday afternoon at Joker Marchant Stadium.

The victory was part of a split-squad sweep for Detroit, which also toppled the Phillies in Clearwater, Fla., 6-2.

Cabrera, serving as the designated hitter for the second straight day, struck out in his first at-bat leading off the second inning. He came up the next inning with the bases loaded courtesy of an Austin Jackson single and walks to Scott Thorman and Brennan Boesch.

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Cliff Lee made his Grapefruit League debut with the Phillies on Tuesday, in a 6-2 loss to the Tigers.

Lee signed a five-year, $120 million contract in December to give the Phillies the best rotation in baseball in recent memory.

Lee hit Tigers second baseman Will Rhymes with a pitch to start the first inning. Rhymes advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored on Ryan Raburn’s triple over center fielder Shane Victorino’s head. Raburn scored on Ryan Strieby’s sacrifice fly to give the Tigers a quick 2-0 lead.
