LAKELAND, Fla. -- Seven years after Miguel Cabrera marked his Tigers debut in Spring Training with a home run, Yoenis Cespedes' first hit in a Detroit uniform also had a similar impact. He drove a grand slam down the left-field line in the fourth inning of the Tigers' Grapefruit League opener against the Orioles on Tuesday at Joker Marchant Stadium.
The Tigers scored 11 runs on just four hits over the first four innings, thanks to three hit batters and a handful of walks. Two of the hits, however, landed on the left-field berm. The biggest came from Cespedes, who nearly became the fourth batter hit instead.
