Dice-K Rolls, Red Sox Beat Tigers 2-1 In 10
Matsuzaka entered with an 11.42 ERA in three games this spring, but allowed only two hits and struck out five against the Tigers. Darnell McDonald homered in the 10th to win it for the Red Sox.
Jacoby Ellsbury also went deep for Boston.
Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hit his second homer of the spring and boosted his average to .306 after a slow start. Justin Verlander pitched 5 1-3 innings and allowed an earned run that raised his spring ERA to 1.20. He struck out five and walked none.
Before the game, Detroit manager Jim Leyland said second baseman Carlos Guillen and reliever Joel Zumaya would not go north with the team when the Tigers break camp. Both are expected to begin the season on the disabled list and remain in Florida to continue rehabilitating their injuries.
