Complete Coverage


Jeremy Bonderman gave up six runs on six hits -- two of them home runs -- as the Tigers took it on the chin in Dunedin on Sunday.

After watching the ball leave the park on his third pitch, Bonderman loaded the bases with a pair of singles and walk before Randy Ruiz hit the grand slam for Toronto. A few more baserunners later, Bondo's day was over.

But Bonderman wasn't the only one with problems keeping the baseball on the playing field. The teams combined for six home runs on the day. Magglio Ordonez and Ryan Strieby went back-to-back off Brian Tallet in the first inning for Detroit. Gerald Laird went long in the third.

The teams combined for 22 hits.

On the mound for Detroit, Zach Miner stopped the bleeding in the first, then Nate Robertson threw three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and no walks. Armando Galarraga gave up two hits in an inning.

Both of Detroit's losses this season have come at the hands of the Jays.

Comment of the Night

Detroitchik threw a softball in the air and NCDee hit it out of the park, in talking about Bonderman's "little trouble" on the mound.

kinda like Custer had "a little trouble"
