After a three hour rain delay, they finally got this one going. The Tigers jumped all over Colon, who only lasted 3 2/3. Maroth pitched well until the seventh, when he gave up a three run homer to Miguel Oliva. And Chris Mears had his first poor outing of the season. Fortunately, it wasn’t poor enough, and the Tigers hung on to a 10-9 win.
Warren Morris continues to hit well, going 3 for 6. Dmitri Young had a good game, going 2 for 5 with a two run homer. And Kevin Witt was a perfect 4 for 4. The Tigers got a season high 16 hits, and as best as I can tell, scored double figures in runs for the first time this season.
