Hyun Jin Ryu leads Blue Jays to win over Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. — Toronto ace Hyun Jin Ryu pitched four scoreless innings as the Blue Jays beat the Detroit Tigers 4-0 in pre-season play on Monday.

Ryu gave up two hits and struck out four in his second start of the spring.

Right-hander T.J. Zeuch replaced Ryu and allowed no runs and one hit in three innings.

Jonathan Davis belted a leadoff homer for Toronto (8-6-1) to open the game and Forrest Wall made it 2-0 on a groundout in the second.

Chavez Young's triple and Otto Lopez's single in the ninth doubled Toronto's lead.

Detroit had just four hits on the day.

Tigers starter Matthew Boyd, dealt to Detroit by Toronto in the David Price deal in 2015, gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits while striking out four and walking one in four innings.

The Blue Jays face the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.
