Brad Penny got his first win as a Detroit Tiger today, pitching 7 innings and only giving up one hit to the White Sox. The one hit was controversial as Chicago's Brent Morel reached in the sixth inning on a hard hit ball down the 3rd base line that was gloved by Brandon Inge. Inge's throw pulled first baseman Miguel Cabrera off the base and the official scorer ruled it was a hit.
It was a cold, rainy night at Comerica Park. Justin Verlander gave up three solo home runs (two to Carlos Quentin), but lit up the radar gun and the rest of the White Sox hitters all night to lead Detroit to a win over Chicago.
It's the first time the Tigers have won a road series this season. After a terrible beating at the hands of the weak-hitting Seattle Mariners last night, the Tigers rode the suddenly good pitching of Rick Porcello to beat the M's 3-2 this afternoon.
Jhonny Peralta belted a three-run triple in the 7th inning to help power the Tigers to an 8-3 win over the Seattle Mariners. Miguel Cabrera and Brennan Boesch both added a pair of hits and drove home a run apiece in the win.
The baseball pundits say that Oakland has great pitching. The Tiger hitters would concur. They could only manage to score once yesterday in a 5-1 loss to the Athletics. That one tally came on a Casper Wells solo homer late in the game.
The Tigers have had their issues with winning on the road in recent years. Perhaps that is about to change. It did for one night anyway, as Phil Coke got his first win of the season for the Tigers. Coke scattered three hits over 7 innings as the Tigers shut out the Oakland A's 3-0.
