LAKELAND, Fla. —

Brad Penny pitched five solid innings and pinch-hitter Ryan Strieby had a two-out single in the eighth, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over a Toronto Blue Jays split squad Saturday.

Strieby's hit went off third baseman John Tolisano's glove and scored Ramon Santiago, who led off the inning with a triple just past diving right fielder Moises Sierra.

Toronto led 3-1 in the seventh, but Detroit rallied back on a solo homer by second baseman Scott Sizemore and a fielder's choice by pinch-hitter Scott Thorman.

Penny gave up leadoff hits in four of his five innings, but limited Toronto to two runs - one earned. After not pitching since May in St. Louis last season because of a lower back injury, the free agent has a 0.87 ERA in three spring starts.
