Oddest information from the game notes:

Fernando Rodney has converted all 5 save chances this season, 4 of them in 1-2-3 fashion. (4 saves where Rodney didn't allow a baserunner? It has to be a scoring mistake! I'm beyond shocked!)

Most depressing information from the game notes:

The Tigers are 19-55 in Anaheim since 1996. (Somehow, I'm not surprised. I knew there was a reason I hated seeing the Tigers leave on west coast road trips.)

Most disconcerting information from the game preview:

Bonderman allowed 10 runs and walked four in four innings of an 11-3 loss at Seattle on Friday. It was the most runs he had allowed since the Angels scored 11 off him July 29, 2007. (I know what happened 3 years ago has nothing to with today. But that's not a good omen!)

Most encouraging information from the game preview:

Austin Jackson leads major league rookies with 19 base hits. (Jackson's bound to slow down, and he is striking out far too much. But it does look like the Tigers knew exactly what they were doing in trading for the rookie CF. He's legit!)

Note from the late night recapper:

I don't know if I'm speaking for the rest of you eastern time zone Tigers fans, but 1 a.m. finishes, to be blunt, blow (As Red Wings fans can attest during the NHL playoffs). It'd be a much more pleasant experience if the the Tigers would win one one of these late night games for the night owls.

Win one for the BYB Night Owls!
