KEY STAT

Tigers 0-for-2 with runners in scoring positon. This is key because they got just 2 at bats with runners in scoring position?!

KEY PLAY

Bottom of the fourth: Two runners on, Victor Martinez pops into a double play. Part 2: V-Mart grounds out in the ninth with Brennan Boesch and Miguel Cabrera on base.

KEY THOUGHTS

Justin Verlander pitched a complete game. He allowed two runs. His ERA is just 3.13 and yet the Tigers have lost in two of his three starts through no fault of his own.

Miguel Cabrera had half the Tigers' hits.

I didn't see the game until the ninth inning, so I don't really have much to add.
