SWEEEEEEEP.

OK, I don't really know much else to say, I was out of town for the day. Justin Verlander gave up seven hits and a walk in eight strong innings, while striking out eight. so that's pretty good.

The starting pitching was actually excellent for the series. Max Scherzer and Armando Galarraga went seven innings apiece, and each of them had eight strikeouts as well.

On the other side of the ledger, rookies Austin Jackson and Will Rhymes accounted for six of the Tigers' 12 hits. Rhymes went 4-for-5 with a double. Jhonny Peralta only had one hit, but he snared three RBI. Brennan Boesch even doubled in a pair of runs!

With the Indians out of the way, Detroit now moves on to the Royals. KC has a 5-4 record in the season series, so it's time to get that lead to the right team's side!
