ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAKELAND, Fla. — Miguel Cabrera had a single in three at-bats soon after the announcement of his $292 million, 10-year contract as the Detroit Tigers topped the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3 today in the final Grapefruit League game for both teams.

Alex Avila hit his first home run of the spring for Detroit. Victor Martinez, Ian Kinsler, and Austin Jackson each had two hits.

Brandon Guyer homered for the Rays.

Tampa Bay starter Matt Moore allowed three runs in three innings, striking out four. Jake McGee pitched an inning and struck out the side.
