Tigers winding down Spring Training

Mar 28th, 2013 - Sports News

— Cole Hamels tuned up for his first opening day start by pitching three scoreless innings for Philadelphia while Justin Verlander worked into the sixth inning Wednesday as the Phillies beat the Detroit Tigers 4-1.

Hamels gave up one hit, walked one and struck out three. He'll start next Monday night at Atlanta.

Verlander allowed one earned run and five hits in 5 2-3 innings, striking out five and walking one. He'll start Monday at Minnesota.

Tigers rookie reliever Bruce Rondon gave up two runs on two hits, two walks and a balk and got just two outs. He entered camp as the favorite to win the closer's job, and has a 5.84 ERA this spring.

Ben Revere raised his spring average to .325 with two hits for the Phillies. Torii Hunter doubled and singled for the Tigers.

— Outfielder Quintin Berry has been optioned to Triple-A Toledo by the Detroit Tigers, who said Don Kelly had made their opening-day roster.

Berry was a contender for left field but was sidelined for much of spring by patellar tendinitis. He hit .258 in 94 games for the Tigers last season and led the team with 21 stolen bases.

His demotion Wednesday leaves Andy Dirks and Matt Tuiasosopo as the Tigers' left fielders.

Kelly was signed as a minor league free agent during the offseason after batting .186 in 75 games for the Tigers last year.
