Penny pitching solid as Tigers beat Jays, 4-3

Post  Admin on Sun Mar 13, 2011 2:54 am

Brad Penny pitched five solid innings allowing one earned run and pinch-hitter Ryan Strieby had a two-out single in the eighth, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over a Toronto Blue Jays split squad game.

Miguel Cabrera continued to break out of a 4-for-23 spring start. After hitting a double and homer Friday, he manufactured Detroit’s first run in the fourth. He walked, went first to third on Brennan Boesch’s single, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Inge.

Penny, who didn’t pitch after May for St. Louis last year due to upper back problems, held Toronto to two runs—one earned. He allowed leadoff hits in four of his five innings, but said he was pleased with a third healthy outing this spring.

Reliever Daniel Schlereth, out two weeks with a hamstring injury, pitched a perfect eighth for the win.
