The spring season is winding down, and at this point in the year you have players putting their time in, yet also not going to hard in the event they get hurt. There’s just three spring games left, and then the fun begins.
Gary Sheffield had the big hit of the game yesterday. He hit a monster three run shot in the third inning that got out in a hurry. Unfortunately Nate Robertson gave up three the very next inning then neither team scored the rest of the way. Placido Polanco was two for two with a run while Craig Monroe was two for three.
Robertson finished the game with five innings under his belt. He gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Jason Grilli, Wil Ledezma and Preston Larrison then pitched scoreless innings to close out the game.
The Tigers take on the Astros with Kenny Rogers throwing for Detroit. Game time is 1:05.
