TORONTO (WWJ/AP) – Brad Penny had the dubious honor of following a no-hit performance by Justin Verlander, and held his own pitching into the eighth inning as the Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on Sunday.

Austin Jackson hit a tie breaking 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.

Jose Bautista homered in his return to the lineup after missing five games with a stiff neck.

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.
