With just over a week until opening day, the Tigers tied the team that should be right there with them in the AL Central this year. Travis Hafner belted a solo shot in the sixth inning to tie it 3-3 and nobody else scored from then on. Yorman Bazardo had a nice outing with three perfect innings and it was Denny Bautista who gave up that solo shot to Hafner.
Gary Sheffield provided the bulk of the offense with a two run blast. Magglio Ordonez and Placido Polanco were the only Tigers with two hits and it’s not ironic that those were the two guys to pick up 200 hits last year.
Nate Robertson has looked sharp this spring and he gets the start tomorrow against the Nationals. Still no further word on the Cabrera extension but the physical is supposed to go down tomorrow.
