KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - In a spring training game that ended with neither team sure who won, the Detroit Tigers were awarded a 6-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves in a rain-shortened exhibition Wednesday.
Hernan Perez hit a two-run, two-out single in the top of the ninth inning that put the Tigers ahead.
The game was stopped with two outs in the bottom of the ninth with a Braves runner on first base, and it never resumed.
During the regular season, the game would have been suspended and completed later. The Braves asked the Elias Sports Bureau for a ruling - with no resumption in sight, the Braves said Elias told them Detroit was declared the winner.
Neither manager questioned the decision, either.
Victor Martinez got two hits, drove in two runs and stole a base for the Tigers. Braves starter Freddy Garcia struck out two in two hitless innings.
