Jackson homers to lead Tigers over Longoria, Rays

Posted: Updated:
PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (WFLA) -

Evan Longoria had two hits in his second spring game in the Tampa Bay Rays' 11-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.
    
Longoria improved to 4 for 5 at the plate this spring after getting off to a late start following offseason back surgery.
    
Austin Jackson hit a two-run homer, Nick Castellanos had three hits with an RBI and Anibal Sanchez pitched three scoreless innings in his second start of the spring for Detroit. Jackson had two of the Tigers' 15 hits.
    
Castellanos, the Tigers' top prospect, is not likely to earn a spot on Opening Day, but the former first-round draft pick and left fielder continues to impress with six hits in nine at bats.
    
Sam Fuld, coming off an injury-marred 2012, hit a two-run triple for Tampa Bay.
    
Reigning AL MVP Miguel Cabrera contributed two hits for the Tigers, including an RBI double.

    With a toss of a football, Charlie Crist boarded the bus in Orlando. “On to victory,” Crist announced, as he headed to his seat. It's a campaign tour that might have seemed improbable just a few years ago. But the former governor is on the campaign trail again, trying to win over voters to win back his old job in Tallahassee.

    James Woolever was shocked to find a bad mark on his credit report. Especially since it was for an "outstanding balance" from a Verizon account opened in 1979. He knew that couldn't be right, because he was just 6 years old then.
