For the first time in my life I saw a no-hitter (of a sort) yesterday. Three Marlins pitchers combined to blank the Tigers 2-0 at Joker Marchant Stadium. Detroit had only one regular (Polanco) in the starting lineup. The other still had WBC games or had the day off. Verlander started and looked good, yielding two hits in five scoreless innings. He struck out four and walked two. Juan Rincon and Scott Williamson pitched scoreless innings of relief for the Tigers. So far this spring Rincon has notallowed a hit in nine innings.
