Live updates: Aaron Harang and the Phillies take on Tigers

It's another painfully beautiful day in Florida, as the Phillies try to break a four-game losing strea against Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers. Refresh your browser for updates throughout the game.

Bottom 9th: With the scored still tied 4-4, Freddy Galvis worked a one-out walk, but Brian Bogusevic and Grady Sizemore couldn't cash in. The game ended in a tie.

Top 9th: Justin De Fratus gave up a pair of single, but used a strikeout and a double play to get out of any trouble.

Bottom 8th: Cesar Hernandez and Darin Ruf hit one-out, back-to-back singles to give the Phillies some life, but Rene Garcia and Odubel Herrera couldn't capitalize.

Top 8th: A lead off Yoenis Cespedes single didn't mean anything after Jonathan Papelbon took over, inducing two ground outs and an easy fly ball.

Bottom 7th: Jeff Francoeur led off with a strike out, but Freddy Galvis got on base with a single. It was not to be, however, as Galvis was picked off first as Cord Phelps batted. Grady Sizemore's fly out concluded things in the Phillies' half of the seventh.

Top 7th: Ryne Sandberg made a bunch of changes, switching out his starters for their bench counterparts. Not counting another fielding error by Freddy Galvis, Jeanmar Gomez's second inning was clean.

Bottom 6th: Russ Canzler tied things up yet again with a solo shot to start the inning. After a Chase Utley walk, Ryan Howard grounded out, Carlos Ruiz flew out, and Odubel Herrera struck out for the third time.

Top 6th: Twin miscues by Freddy Galvis and Russ Canzler put runners on second and third for Harang, and Jefry Marte's single through the left side scored Yoenis Cespedes from second base to make it 4-3. Harang was then taken out of the game.

Jeanmar Gomez took over for Harang with one out, and struck out the first batter he faced before inducing a pop-out to end the frame.

Bottom 5th: Jeff Francoeur led off with the Phillies' fourth hit of the day, a single. Harang was apparently not coming out of the game after all, and was allowed to hit, bunting Francoeur over to second aftyer Freddy Galvis flew out. Grady Sizemore's loopy liner was caught at third base, ending the inning.

Top 5th: Harang pitched another 1-2-3 inning, presumably his last for the day, notching his fourth strike out while he was at it.

Bottom 4th: Chase Utley stepped in and evened things out again with a solo blast to make it 3-3. Howard, Ruiz, and Odubel Herrera all struck out to give Sanchez eight for the day in only the fourth inning.

Top 4th: The easy innings were over for Harang at this point, as he allowed two home runs to Tyler Collins (solo shot) and Yoenis Cespedes (runner on second) to make it 3-2. 

Bottom 3rd: Ben Revere and Aaron Harang both struck out to start the frame, and things were over quickly on a Russ Canzler ground out.

Top 3rd: Harang kept on cruising with another 1-2-3 inning, ending in a spectacular catch by Ben Revere at the outfield fence after a deep fly ball by Rajai Davis (who fist bumped Revere for his efforts).

Bottom 2nd: Jeff Francoeur and Odubel Herrera got things off to a less resounding start for the offense than the previous inning with a pair of swinging strike outs care of Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez. Freddy Galvis followed with a ground out.

Top 2nd: Harang threw another quick inning, including a strike out of Yoenis Cespedes, and despite a two-out walk, left unscathed.

Bottom 1st: Ben Revere led off with his 10th hit of spring training, a single to left. Russ Canzler knocked a hard, but playable, fly ball to left that kept Revere on first, but it wasn't long before he was scurrying to second for his second stolen base in three games. Chase Utley stepped in and absolutely crushed a two-run home run to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead - his first HR of the spring.

Ryan Howard followed with a strike out and Carlos Ruiz flew out to left center to end the inning.

Top 1st: Aaron Harang needed only 14 pitches for a 1-2-3 first, shutting down the top of the Detroit lineup with a fly out, strike out, and ground out.

Here's your Phillies lineup for the day:
