PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Victor Martinez had two run-scoring groundouts off R.A. Dickey and Brad Penny pitched into the fourth inning Monday, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets.

Dickey gave up four hits in four innings in his second start for New York. He threw 47 pitches, then headed to the bullpen down the third base line for a simulated inning to raise his count to 75. Afterward he ran along he warning track in the outfield to complete his workout.

Penny is coming back from an injury to the back of his shoulder that limited him to nine starts for St. Louis last year. He gave up three hits and struck out four in 3 1-3 innings.

Andy Dirks tripled and doubled for Detroit.
