Peralta Gets Latest Tryout As No. 5 Hitter

The search for a fifth hitter in the Detroit batting order goes on.

Jhonny Peralta hit fifth Tuesday night, for the second time this season, making it four different players to bat behind cleanup man Prince Fielder in as many games. Eight different players have been used in the fifth spot this season.
