« Bonds and A-Rod Sit Out Home Run Derby | Bonderman Throws Another Good One »

Ledezma pitched five shutout innings in his first start of the season and Mears shut down the White Sox in the 8th and 9th to earn his first career save. Also gotta give credit to Carlos Pena for coming up with the go ahead home run. Pena has improved his batting average from .235 to .253 since coming off the DL so hopefully he’s coming around.

The win puts the Tigers at 22-65 on the season. The team they’re trying to beat out, the 1962 Mets, were 24-63 (as best I can tell, and which means they must have finished 16-57). Of course the Tigers will play two more games then the 62 Mets, so it will be interesting to see how they get compared if they finish 41-121 (one more win, but one more loss).
