Tigers rookie Jackson leaves game with back spasms

Detroit Tigers rookie outfielder Austin Jackson left Sunday's game against Pittsburgh after a half-inning because of back spasms. Jackson made one defensive play in the top of the first — catching a routine fly ball to center field — but was replaced by pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn to lead off the bottom of the inning. Jackson is being listed as day-to-day. Detroit regulars Magglio Ordonez (strained oblique) and Carlos Guillen (calf) also missed the game. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
