Virgil Vasquez, Aquilino Lopez Pitch Tigers to Second Straight Spring Win

Virgil Vasquez made the most of his surprise start today as the Tigers took care of the Blue Jays 4-1.  Vasquez pitched in place of Nate Robertson, who’s wife had a baby boy earlier in the morning.  Congratulations to Nate and his wife. 

Vasquez threw two no-hit frames to start the game and he gave up a walk.  Aquilino Lopez struck out three in two shutout innings and the only pitcher to give up a run was Macay McBride, and even that was unearned.  Matt Mantei walked two and struck out one in his one inning.

Curtis Granderson went yard with a two run shot in the second inning.  Magglio Ordonez had a pair of hits including a two run double that put the Tigers on the board in the first inning.

Tomorrow, you’ll have two starters getting time with Justin Verlander and Nate Robertson pitching a couple of innings.  All eyes will probably on Rick Porcello though, who makes his spring debut in a rematch against the Blue Jays.
