KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer in the first inning Friday, leading the Houston Astros past the Detroit Tigers 10-4 in an exhibition game.

Rasmus drove in four runs with his second spring homer and a single.

George Springer scored twice for the Astros and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Carlos Correa had two hits.

Houston starter Scott Feldman gave up two runs on four hits in three innings, leaving with a 4-2 lead after Springer ran down Miguel Cabrera's drive into the gap with two men on base.

Steven Moya hit his third home run for Detroit.

Rookie Michael Fulmer started for the Tigers and pitched one inning, giving up three walks and the three-run homer. Fulmer came to Detroit from the New York Mets last summer in the Yeonis Cespedes trade.
