DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers continue to dominate offensively with a 9-0 win over the Chicago White Sox Saturday afternoon.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket the Tigers get the second win in the three game series against Chicago.

Brad Penny had a no-hit bid broken up on an infield single in the sixth and the Detroit Tigers scored five in the fifth inning of a 9-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

With one-out in the sixth inning, Morel hit a chopper down the third-base line. Brandon Inge backhanded it behind the bag and made a throw in the dirt that first baseman Miguel Cabrera couldn’t field cleanly to attempt a tag on Morel.

Official scorer Ron Kleinfelter called it a hit, not an error that would’ve kept the no-hitter intact, after watching the replay. Most of 35,227 fans at Comerica Park booed.

Penny (1-2) pitched seven innings, allowing a hit and walking two.

Edwin Jackson (2-2) gave up eight runs – seven earned – on 12 hits and four walks over 5 2-3 innings.
