LAKELAND, FLA. (AP) - With three weeks left to win the final spot in Detroit’s rotation, Nate Robertson has little doubt about his chances.

The left-hander pitched three scoreless innings Saturday, allowing one hit in the Tigers’ 10-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Toronto led 4-1 before Detroit scored two runs off Mike Maroth in the fifth. The ex-Tiger allowed seven hits _ including Gerald Laird’s 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.
