Justin Verlander continues to amaze. Other then a solo homerun to Joe Inglett, Verlander was pretty much flawless through 6 2/3 innings. Todd Jones had an uneventful ninth inning and he picked up his 27th save of the season. He’s now tied for the league lead with 13 wins.
Magglio Ordonez’s two run double turned out to be the difference in the game. The Tigers added a couple more and Craig Monroe finished the game with three hits. Dmitri Young got his first day off since coming back.
The Twins swept the White Sox, so the Tigers picked up another game. The Tigers get the day off before heading for a pretty big three game series with the Twins. They’ll be facing the big guns on the mound (Liriano and Santana) and the Tigers will go a long way towards burying their competition if they can pull off two of three.
