Fitting the Tigers and Jays didn't feel like playing any more innings in their final meeting of the Grapefruit League. They've only combined for 63 thousand. So it ended in a tie.

Rick Porcello threw five innings of no-hit ball before the Blue Jays got to him in the sixth. He left the game after allowing three hits and two runs in the sixth but before that he retired 16 of the first 17 Jays batters.

The Tigers seem to be getting into midseason form, of course, as they hit just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Brandon Inge, Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila each. Avila and Cabrera had the RBIs.

Joel Zumaya, Phil Coke, Jose Valverde and Brad Thomas combined for three scoreless innings of relief. It was Zumaya's second consecutive day on the mound.

Despite MadPoopz' best efforts, Murrajo takes the victory:

Is this game an example of what happens if the same two teams play each other everyday for 6 weeks?
