Tigers 5, Blue Jays 2

TORONTO — Brad Penny was almost as effective against the Blue Jays as Justin Verlander was, following the no-hitter by pitching into the eighth for the Tigers. "I said, 'Man, it's like throwing a bunch of changeups coming in after that guy,' " Penny said. Austin Jackson hit a tiebreaking homer, and Jose Valverde became the 41st player to earn 200 saves. Jose Bautista homered in his return to the Blue Jays lineup after missing five games with a stiff neck.
