We're going STREAKING! Alright, I can't really muster that much excitement for spring training results. But the Tigers are 3-0 in the Grapefruit League and 4-0 this month, so we may as well get that mentioned right away.

Justin Verlander made his spring training debut with a pair of scoreless innings. He allowed a hit and struck out one. Adam Wilk gave up two hits in two scoreless frames.

Phil Coke and David Pauley struggled a bit, combining to allow two runs on five hits and a walk.

Trailing 2-1, Detroit took the lead when Quintin Berry tripled to drive in two runs. Ryan Raburn and Delmon Young accounted for the Tigers' earlier run, a sac by Raburn after Young initially reached with a lead-off double.

Starting at second, Brandon Inge went 0-for-2. ... The Tigers' error was committed by third baseman Nick Castellanos. ... Prince Fielder had the day off, as he'll on tomorrow's travel squad to Jupiter, Fla.
