LAKELAND, Fla.  — Tigers ace Justin Verlander gave three home runs and the Houston Astros beat Detroit 7-2 today.

Carlos Corporan hit two homers for the Astros. Brandon Laird and Matt Dominguez also homered Houston.

Verlander allowed four earned runs in 5 2-3 innings. He has a 4.74 ERA this spring.

Lucas Harrell, who will pitch the second game of the season for Houston, gave up two runs in five innings.

Victor Martinez doubled and singled for the Tigers.

Astros first baseman Brett Wallace sustained shoulder spasms in his right trapezoid diving back to first on a pickoff move and is considered day-to-day.
