Seven Tigers pitchers held the hard hitting Blue Jays to five hits in their 4-0 win yesterday afternoon. Phil Coke made the start and he pitched two shutout frames and he was followed by Duane Below, who pitched a pair of innings in which he gave up three hits and struck out two. In the final four frames (a pitcher each inning), the Tigers didn’t allow a hit or a walk.
At the plate, Scott Sizemore led the way with a double, a single and two RBIs. Austin Jackson went one for two with a walk and a run (and he didn’t strike out) while Brandon Inge doubled and drove in one.
The Jays and Tigers square off again this afternoon but this time at Joker Marchant. Max Scherzer gets the start and we’ll also see Brad Penny, Joel Zumaya and Joaquin Benoit get some time on the mound. If everything works out right, Miguel Cabrera should get into his first game tomorrow.
