Wandy Rodriguez had a figurative sigh of relief Tuesday, not only finishing the fourth inning for the first time this spring but also the fifth and the sixth in a 14-7 win over the Tigers.

It wasn't without a few ugly moments, as the Tigers jumped on him for five runs in the first two innings. But Rodriguez pitched a scoreless 3rd-6th, finishing with five runs allowed on six hits in the six innings and a total of 90 pitches.

"I wanted to go longer in the game and I did it today," Rodriguez said.
