Snake bites

• Aaron Hill continued his torrid spring by going 3-for-3 Sunday, hitting a double and a homer and driving four runs to raise his average to .452.

"You're still trying to work out the little things," Hill said. "Yeah, I feel good, but there are days where you just feel a little inconsistent."

Hill was jokingly asked if he was disappointed manager Kirk Gibson didn't leave him in the game to try and get a triple for the cycle. Last season he had a pair of cycles.

"There's plenty of at-bats during the season," Hill said.

• Trevor Cahill was impressive in allowing one hit in five scoreless innings.

"Trevor threw the ball very well," Gibson said. "The best he's thrown it this spring. I thought the last inning was his best inning."

While overall pleased with his outing, Cahill was kicking himself for the two walks he allowed.

"I think the biggest thing I've been working on is not walking anybody," Cahill said. "I kind of let a couple of at-bats go, but other than that, I feel like I was getting ahead a lot better than I was the last couple outings."
