LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) The Detroit Tigers led a Toronto Blue Jays split squad 2-0 in the third inning Tuesday when their game was rained out.

Designated hitter Victor Martinez made his first appearance for the Tigers since March 14. He's been recovering from a left hamstring strain. He lined out in his only at-bat.

Justin Upton singled and scored a run.

Justin Wilson started for the Tigers and pitched a scoreless inning. He was followed by new closer Francisco Rodriguez, who threw another scoreless inning. Rodriguez hasn't allowed an earned run all spring.
