Tigers 5 Blue Jays 1
W: Galarraga (2-0)
L: Marcum (2-1)
- The solo HR Todd Jones gave up was the first run allowed by the Tiger bullpen in the Toronto series. It was also only the second run and sixth hit Jones has allowed in 7 innings of work this season.
- The baseball gods must have felt sorry for allowing David Eckstein to homer off the Tigers. The Li'l Scrapper had an error that in part led to the 4 run 2nd inning for the Tigers.
- So much for Edgar Renteria not being able to adjust to the AL. He is now hitting .300, hitting his 3rd HR of the year. His 13 RBI now tie Miguel Cabrera for the team lead. So when does he get a chance to hit ahead of Jacque Jones for a change?
- After going 0-4 with 3 K's on Sunday, Pudge turned it around and went 4-5 today, with a RBI and a double.
- Exact same line-up as Sunday, yet 2 more runs and 3 more hits.
- Anyone else clamoring for a Clete/Raburn platoon (or any platoon that doesn't feature "Jones" as a member) when Granderson returns this week?
- At 11-7 Chicago is the only AL Central team above .500.
