Detroit moved into a tie for second place with Tampa Bay in the Grapefruit League with a 3-0 win over St. Louis, the shutout the work of Shawn Hill and three relievers, who combined to hold the Cardinals to just four hits.
Hill (shown here in a Toronto cap), acquired by Detroit from Toronto following the 2012 campaign, hurled four innings of scoreless ball, allowing just one hit and one walk while fanning three.
A ten-year veteran, Hill hasn't made a major league start since 2010 with the Blue Jays, but is hoping to fill out an already-solid Detroit staff. After being bombed for 10 hits and five earned runs in his first outing this Spring, Saturday's effort was a huge step toward that end.
Harrison didn't walk a batter and struck out three, dueling with Dodger ace, Clayton Kershaw, who threw six innings of shutout ball. Neither starter received a decision, as the Tigers didn't score until the seventh inning, when they plated all of their runs.
Harrison started 32 games for the Rangers in 2012, going 18-11 with a 3.32 ERA.
Texas evened its exhibition record at 10-10.
