Tigers 11 Mariners 7
Coming into this series the Mariners had won 9 of their last 12 games and at home had won 10 of their last twelve. So leaving Seattle with a split isn't half bad. The Tigers again seemed more comfortable with 2 outs, driving in 6 of the 11 scored while down to their last out of the inning. Curtis Granderson, Gary Sheffield and Pudge might be sad to leave Seattle, since they went a combined 21 for 33. It was also good to see Magglio hit his first home run since June 2nd. You know things are going your way when Sean Casey gets a steal. Speaking of steals, there must be something in the Seattle air, because the Tigers swiped 5 bases today. That's the most they've had in a game since April 23 of last year when they were playing at Safeco Field.
Marcus Thames. Drove in 4 runs and another nail in C-Mo's coffin.
Carlos Guillen. Committed a inning prolonging error, which led to 3 more runs being scored by the Mariners, and made the game look a lot closer than it was.
