The Tigers proved they can beat Carl Pavano, after all.
Magglio Ordonez and Brandon Inge continued their hot hitting, combining to drive in five of Detroit's seven runs. Seven runs matches the total Pavano had allowed to the Tigers in his five previous starts against them this season, by the way.
Meanwhile, Eddie Bonine gave up only two runs for the second straight start, (though it looked shaky at the beginning) and three relievers pitched three innings of scoreless baseball.
And with that, Detroit's lead in the AL Central is three games. Their magic number is two. Something very cool could happen tomorrow afternoon at Comerica Park.
Tigers beat the Twins, 7-2! Full recap to come. But for now, enjoy the afterglow!
