Give credit where credit is due. With the bullpen shorthanded, clutch performances from Al Alburquerque and Jose Alvarez led the Tigers to victory. On offense, Miguel Cabrera and Don Kelly led the way, both homering.
Brandon Maurer has his work cut out for him facing the Tigers' lineup, but he hasn't been as bad as his superficial numbers indicate. Anibal Sanchez is pitching for the Tigers and he has been very, very good.
