Justin Verlander Hit Hard in Spring Loss to Red Sox

Justin Verlander was bounced after only two innings of work in which he gave up six runs on five hits and three walks (wonder where the walks came from, that’s unlike him).  Most of the damage came on Eric Hinske’s grand slam homerun.  Edward Campusano picked him up with two innings of no hit ball (I’m liking this guy more and more) and the rest of the pen pen pitched pretty well outside of Jose Mesa, who gave up a run on four hits in an 1 2/3.

Verlander wasn’t the only guy who was hit hard.  Magglio Ordenez was hit hard, in the head.  He was taken to a hospital and hopefully everything there will be okay.  Before having to leave, he singled and drove in two runs as did Carlos Guillen.  Ivan Rodriguez hit his second homerun of the spring and Placido Polanco scored twice in the 7-6 loss.

The Tigers have two games today as they split up the squads.  Three weeks until real baseball starts though.
