Joe Bowen Singles Tigers to Win Over Nationals

Miguel Cabrera and Ivan Rodriguez both belted solo shots in the Tigers 4-3 win over the Nationals today but it was Joe Bowen who was filling in at catcher and who came up with the late inning heroics.  His ninth inning RBI single broke a 3-3 ties that gave the Tigers the win.  Cabrera finished the day with two hits and two RBIs while the Brandon Inge watch saw him getting the start out in centerfield.

Justin Verlander and Armando Galarraga both threw three shutout innings in the win.  Zach Miner gave up all three Nationals runs in his two innings of work while Freddy Dolsi threw a shutout ninth and he picked up his third save of the spring.

The Tigers split things up tomorrow.  Dontrelle Willis gets the start at home against the Reds while Yorman Bazardo hits the road to take on the Indians.  Rick Porcello is supposed to throw in that Indians game as well.
