Sports: Pistons Win; Sanchez Back with Tigers
The Pistons won their third straight game as they beat the Bucks 92-91. Andre Drummond's tip-in with 2.1 seconds left gave the Pistons the win. Detroit came back from a 17-point deficit. Marcus Morris led the Pistons with 21 points. Drummond had 14 points and 16 boards, and Caldwell-Pope scored 15. The Pistons (37-34) stayed right on track in their playoff pursuit of the Chicago Bulls, who led them by percentage points going into Monday's games. The Bulls beat the Kings Monday night. Detroit has 11 games left in the season, and all but four are home games. The Pistons host the Magic on Wednesday.
The Red Wings finish a 4-game road trip tonight in Tampa. With 10 games left in the regular season, the Red Wings are trying to hold on to the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Anibal Sanchez did not allow a hit in four shutout innings Monday afternoon in the Tigers 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the first Grapefruit League start this spring for Sanchez, who has been sidelined by right triceps inflammation that popped up Feb. 22 during a bullpen session. Miguel Cabrera and Mike Aviles had rbi's for Detroit.
The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for the Tigers. They take on the Blue Jays this afternoon.
There will be a new look, but Mark Dantonio said the goals and ambitions will remain the same for Michigan State football as the program enters spring drills Tuesday.
The most notable change for the Spartans is replacing all-time leading passer Connor Cook, a three-year starter at quarterback. That alone will give the offense a new look.
Senior Tyler O'Connor and junior Damion Terry are bracketed as the starters at quarterback entering spring drills, though Dantonio said the competition will likely spill over into the first couple of games of the 2016 season.
Lions Sign Receiver
The Lions have agreed to terms with free agent receiver Jeremy Kerley. He is the second wide out to join the club via free agency, joining star acquisition Marvin Jones. Kerley, at 5-foot-9, likely fits in as depth in the slot. He caught 182 passes in five seasons with the Jets, for 2,225 yards and nine touchdowns.
He caught just 16 passes in 16 games last year, though, and was released this offseason by New York. . Detroit also has Golden Tate under contract, as well as reserves TJ Jones and Corey Fuller.
