BOX

KEY STAT

15 hits: Alowed by the Tigers, including 3 each to Corey Patterson and Juan Rivera

KEY STAT (B)

Jays starter Jesse Litsch struck out nine in 6.1 innings for a career-high.

KEY PLAY

Patterson doubles off Brad Thomas in the eighth inning to put the Jays up by six runs. The Tigers tried to rally in the ninth but that deficit was just too much.

KEY THOUGHTS

Looks like the Tigers made another so-so starter look like Cy Young when he took the mound against them. Those surprised say aye. And the nays? Yeah. This is no surprise.

Detroit did rap out some hits, but the game was pretty much decided by the ninth inning so i am not exactly excited about that fact.

Brandon Inge is now above the Mendoza line after having two hits.

I'd have to look at the stats but Brennan Boesch just does not seem to come through in pressure situations does he? With a chance to make the ninth a bit more interesting, he lined out to end the game.
