A note to headline writers at Do not begin a headline "Justin Verlander hurt ..." unless you want to cause Tigers fans to hyperventilate by the third word. What's next? "Verlander injured by the longball"?

OK, on to the game.

Nevermind, I just looked at the box score. Can we skip that part of the recap and get straight to the comment of the night?



Well, Austin Jackson had a hit and stole a base. Manager Jim Leyland decided to greenlight his leadoff batter to see how his instincts are before the season begins. Jeff Larish had the Tigers' other two hits. Thus concludes the highlights.

The lowlights? Verlander and Phil Coke will be in a lot of Phillies' highlight reels as Phillies prospect Domonic Brown homered off both.

OK, now can we get to the comment of the night? Good.
