Penny shines through 8 innings as Tigers win, 5-2

Post  Admin on Sun May 08, 2011 9:03 pm

Brad Penny pitched well into the eighth inning as the Detroit Tigers followed Verlander’s no-hitter by beating the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-2.

Austin Jackson hit a tiebreaking home run, Jose Valverde struck out the side in the ninth for seventh save and the 200th of his career, becoming the 41st player in major league history to reach the mark.

Penny (3-3) responded to the third-inning shot by retiring 10 straight batters and 14 of the next 15. The right-hander allowed two runs and seven hits in a season-high 7 2-3 innings, walked none and struck out one.
