Guillen powers Tigers past Phillies

TIGERS (ss) 6, PHILLIES (ss) 2
at Lakeland, Fla.
Wednesday, March 5

Phillies at the plate: Philadelphia went scoreless for six innings until Brandon Watson singled and scored in the seventh. Brad Harman singled in Pedro Feliz later in the inning to bring the Phillies within two.

Tigers at the plate: Carlos Guillen hit two tape-measure home runs deep to right field, both of them solo shots, and added another RBI later. Magglio Ordonez went 2-for-3 with a solo homer to the top of the left-field berm.

Phillies on the mound: J.D. Durbin gave up three home runs over four innings. He walked two and struck out three in his second outing of the spring. J.A. Happ gave up one run over two innings of relief.

Tigers on the mound: In his second outing of the spring, Justin Verlander picked up where he left off in his Grapefruit League debut, tossing three scoreless innings with one hit allowed. Denny Bautista continued his torrid spring with two hitless innings, giving the non-roster right-hander five scoreless innings on two hits so far.

Grapefruit League records: Phillies 3-4, Tigers 4-3-1.

Up next: Former National League East foes Dontrelle Willis and Tom Glavine will match up on Thursday afternoon when the Tigers host the Braves at Joker Marchant Stadium. Game time is 1:05 p.m. ET. The Phillies return home with their full roster to host Tampa Bay in a 1:05 p.m. ET contest. Adam Eaton will start for the Phillies opposite James Shields.
