(DETROIT) – The Toronto Blue Jays figured out the perfect strategy against Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. The Blue Jays simply sat back and let the Tigers' pitching staff beat itself with control problems. Toronto drew 10 walks, including two with the bases loaded, and went on to a 7-2 victory. The game lasted 3 hours, 48 minutes, ending just before 11 PM. The Tigers threw 220 pitches, matching their most in a nine-inning game since needing 224 in a 26-5 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sept. 9, 2004. Steve Pearce and Jose Baustista homered for the Blue Jays, who won the first game of a 10 day, 10 game road trip. Aaron Sanchez (1-2) allowed one unearned run, seven hits and two walks to win for the first time since last October 2. Verlander (5-7) only allowed three hits, but needed 114 pitches to get through 5 1/3 innings. He gave up three runs, two earned, while walking three and striking out five. The Tigers had runners at second and third in the second inning and at the corners in the third, but Sanchez escaped both times without damage. The Tigers had runners on the corners when Alex Avila lined sharply to third base. Josh Donaldsn threw to first, trying to double off Alex Presley, but the throw got away from Justin Smoak, allowing Jose Iglesias to score and make it 2-1. Andrew Romine homered for the Tigers in the ninth.
