Magglio Ordonez doubled his season homerun total today with a pair of longballs in the Tigers 8-2 win over the Rangers. Ordonez finished the contest three for four with four RBIs while Curtis Granderson, Brandon Inge and Ryan Raburn all went yard in the game as well. For Granderson and Raburn, it was their first of the season.
The last time the Tigers had five homers in a game was back on June 18, 2006. In fact in that game, they tied a team mark with eight homeruns in a game.
Jeremy Bonderman struggled at times and while he gave up just a pair of runs, he walked seven. He did strikeout seven as well. Zach Miner was the pitching star though and he had his best outing the season. He walked one and struck out three in 3 1/3 shutout innings to pick up his first win of the season.
Next up are the Angels. Nate Robertson goes for his first win of the season tomorrow night while the Tigers hope to hand Ervin Santana his first loss. The Tigers will be going for their fifth win in a row as they slowly try to creep their way out of the cellar.
