Thursday, March 8, 2012
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) -- Doug Fister pitched three scoreless innings and Delmon Young hit a three-run homer for the Detroit Tigers in an 8-1 win Thursday over a Tampa Bay Rays split squad that lost David Price to an injury.
Price left the game with minor neck spasms after the left-hander pitched two scoreless innings for the Rays in his second spring start, giving up three hits with a walk and a strikeout.
The only hit Fister gave up was an infield single to Rays shortstop Reid Brignac in the third inning.
Miguel Cabrera had three hits for Detroit, including a double that was inches away from going over the left-center field wall in the third inning.
