LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- With three weeks left to win the final spot in the Detroit Tigers' starting rotation, Nate Robertson has little doubt about his chances.
After pitching three scoreless innings in the Tigers' 10-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, allowing one hit while striking out one, Robertson was pleased.
Toronto led 4-1 before Detroit scored two runs off Mike Maroth in the bottom of the fifth. The ex-Tiger allowed seven hits -- including a Gerald Laird homer -- and walked three.
Mike Hessman homered for the Tigers in the seventh off Rick Bauer, who allowed four earned runs in 1 1/3 innings. Detroit finished with 14 hits.
