Rollins has 3-run homer; Phillies beat Tigers 10-6

Posted: Updated:

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer in his second plate appearance of an eight-run third inning Friday, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 10-6 win over a Detroit Tigers split-squad.

Batting second in manager Ryne Sandberg's lineup, Rollins led off the third inning with his second walk of the game. The 35-year-old Rollins hit a career-low six home runs last year, including only two in 64 games after the All-Star break.

Domonic Brown and Carlos Ruiz each had RBI singles for the Phillies while bench hopeful Darin Ruf had a pair of RBIs.
