Raburn homers off Lee, Tigers and Phillies tie

Ryan Raburn hit a two-run homer off Phillies ace Cliff Lee in the first inning and the Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia tied at 4 in a split-squad game Sunday.

The game was called after the 10th.

Lee gave up three consecutive hits to begin the game, including Raburn's homer. After Miguel Cabrera singled, Lee set down three straight batters, striking out two of them.

Lee, slowed by a minor abdominal injury at the start of spring, allowed six hits in three innings.

Detroit starter Rick Porcello went four innings and also gave up two runs and six hits.
