Cabrera homers to help Tigers beat Pirates 4-1

Posted: Updated:

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Miguel Cabrera hit his third home run of the spring and Drew Smyly pitched three perfect innings for a Detroit Tigers split squad in a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.

Austin Jackson had 1 of Detroit's three hits and scored twice.

Cabrera, the reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner, was scheduled to leave Tigers camp later in the day, along with teammates Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez, to join Team Venezuela for the World Baseball Classic.

The 22-year-old Smyly, competing for the fifth spot in Detroit's rotation, struck out two in his second start this spring.

Pittsburgh starter Jeanmar Gomez also went three innings. He gave up three hits, three walks and four runs, two on Cabrera's opposite-field homer in the third.
