Tigers 6 Mariners 3
Gary Sheffield unloaded on his former team in an interview with HBO's Real Sports, which were made public today. Tonight he came up and unloaded on a Jarrod Washburn offering for the 7th Grand Slam hit by a Tiger this year. That was all the help Jeremy Bonderman needed to pick up his 10th win of the season. Two other positve notes: 1) the defense finally had an error free game; led by Brandon Inge who made a great diving catch at third. 2) another game with the bullpen not allowing the run is nice.
Gary Sheffield. Only one hit tonight, but it was big.
Craig Monroe. Another 0fer, with 2 K's
