Toronto Blue Jays
A six run fourth inning set the tone for the Tigers as they trounce the Toronto Blue Jays 10-5 on Monday night.
Getting Jose Bautista and Aaron Hill back in the lineup wasn’t enough to help the Toronto Blue Jays break out of their recent offensive funk. Their slump could continue Monday night when they face Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers in the finale of a four-game set.
Justin Verlander was picking up the check. The steaks and wine were on him, and why not?
The Tigers made it two straight over the Toronto Blue Jays with a 5-2 win at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
Brad Penny pitched well into the eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers followed Justin Verlander’s no- hitter by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 Sunday.
Justin Verlander threw the 2nd no-hitter of his career – and the 7th in Tigers history – beating the Blue Jays in Toronto, 9-0.
Verlander barely missed a perfect game. He becomes the 30th pitcher in major league history to throw multiple career no- hitters.
Something was different at the Rogers Center on this Saturday afternoon (May 7, 2011). The roof was open for the first time all season and it might be the last time. Why? Because of Justin Verlander who started the game retiring 22 Blue Jays before walking J.P. Arencibia on a 3-2 count during a 12 pitch at bat.
It’s a side note that the Tigers beat the Blue Jays 9-0 on Saturday afternoon, as Justin Verlander puts his name in the history books with a no-hitter against Toronto.
Phil Coke threw a lot of strikes — and a lot of them got hit. Of the 79 pitches Coke threw, 58 were strikes, and 11 of those wound up being base hits.
