Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Monday's 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies with a bloody face after a hard grounder from Hunter Pence hit him near the right eye.
Cabrera was taken to a hospital to receive stitches and get precautionary X-rays.
Jimmy Rollins hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly for the Phillies.
Before the game, the Phillies announced that second baseman Chase Utley left camp to see a specialist for his injured knees and he's likely to start the season on the disabled list.
Freddy Galvis, the leading candidate to replace Utley, hit a two-run triple to tie it at 3.
He scored on Rollins' hard liner, with left fielder Matt Young made a sliding catch, during a
four-run fifth inning.
Brennan Boesch hit a two-run homer for Detroit.
