Tigers Jack Jays, 5-2

Austin Jackson had another 3-hit day today.  Yesterday, he had three more hits than the entire Blue Jay team, but it went unnoticed as Justin Verlander pitched a no-hitter.  Today, Jackson’s hits were hard to ignore.  Especially his two-run homer to give Detroit the lead 4-2 in the 7th inning. 

The Tiger leadoff hitter has had an abysmal start to the 2011 season, leading the league in strikeouts and hitting well under .200.  Lately Jackson has been reaching base with regularity, and it’s no coincidence that the Tiger fortunes have turned around as well.  Jackson’s batting average is now at .224

Brad Penny got off to a shaky start, but settled down and gave the Tigers 7 and 2/3 innings of  solid work in collecting his third win of the season.  Jose Valverde struck out the side in the 9th for his 7th save of the season and the 200th of his career.

The win improves Detroit’s record to 17-18, another win tomorrow in Toronto gets them to the .500 mark.  Max Scherzer gets the start for the Tigers in tomorrow night’s game.  7:05 first pitch.  After that the Tigers head to Minnesota for two games with the Twins.

I’m starting to like what I’m seeing with this team, let’s hope it continues!
