The Yankees and a Detroit Tigers split-squad played 10 innings on Sunday at George M. Steinbrenner Field, and finished in a 1-1 tie.

The Yanks are now 13-9-2 in the Grapefruit League -- 5-0-2 in their last seven games, and 8-1-2 since March 15. The Tigers are 14-4-4.

Your Yankees stars of the game are:

* Derek Jeter, who had two of the Yankees' five hits on the day -- a solo home run in the first inning, and a double in the third. Jeter is now hitting .348 this spring.

* Michael Pineda, who started and gave up just one run on five hits in five innings of work, lowering his spring ERA to 3.31.

* The third star goes to the Yankees' bullpen, which hurled five scoreless innings after Pineda departed. Mariano Rivera, Rafael Soriano, David Robertson, Manny Delcarmen and Clay Rapada all pitched an inning each.
