|No Hit Bid Ends on Call as Tigers Beat White Sox
|DETROIT (AP) -- Brad Penny had a no-hit bid broken up on an infield single in the sixth and the Detroit Tigers scored five in the fifth inning of a 9-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.
With one-out in the sixth inning, Morel hit a chopper down the third-base line. Brandon Inge backhanded it behind the bag and made a throw in the dirt that first baseman Miguel Cabrera couldn't field cleanly to attempt a tag on Morel.
Official scorer Ron Kleinfelter called it a hit, not an error that would've kept the no-hitter intact, after watching the replay. Most of 35,227 fans at Comerica Park booed.
Penny (1-2) pitched seven innings, allowing a hit and walking two.
Edwin Jackson (2-2) gave up eight runs -- seven earned -- on 12 hits and four walks over 5 2-3 innings.
