LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit his second home run of the spring and raised his average to .385, leading the Detroit Tigers past the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Saturday.

Lance Lynn started his third game of the spring for the Cardinals and allowed six hits and two runs in five innings. He walked none and struck out five.
Alex Avila homered for the Tigers.
