Cy Young Award winners Roy Halladay and Justin Verlander made their spring training debuts Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies and Detroit Tigers tied 5-5 in 10 innings.

Both aces allowed a run and struck out two in two innings.

Victor Martinez had a big day at the plate for the Tigers, going 3 for 3 with a home run off Halladay. Martinez, who batted .330 with 102 RBIs for Detroit in 2011, missed last season with a left knee injury. He is batting .571 this spring.

Ryan Howard had two doubles and an RBI for the Phillies, who tied the score in the eighth on a homer by Domonic Brown.

AL MVP and Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera went 0 for 3, dropping his spring average to .111.
