The Detroit Tigers gave up 13 runs, Max Scherzer gave up 11 hits, Luis Marte gave up his spot on the active roster thanks to an injury, and the Grapefruit League gave up the ghost for 2012. Spring training is officially over.

Scherzer struggled to keep batters off the bases for his second straight game. March 29 against Washington, he allowed 10 hits. Today against the Blue Jays, 13. The next time he takes the mound, none of this matters. Put it out of your head.

Miguel Cabrera and Andy Dirks both had multi-hit games, with two apiece. Dirks finished the Grapefruit season with a team-high (among regulars anyway) .429 average. He had 24 hits -- though just three for extra-bases. One of them was a triple; that one was today.

Danny Worth and Miguel Cabrera both hit home runs.

Detroit finished the Florida season 20-8-too-many-ties.

Wheels up for Detroit. Woo! We survived another one, folks!
