Detroit 6 Baltimore 5.  The longball on pitches over the plate account for five of Detroit's runs.  Plays in the outfield and one at shortstop help keep runners off base.  Detroit would problems of its own keeping Baltimore in the ballpark.  A difference was two of the Orioles' home runs were with the bases empty.  Jordan was able to get first pitch strikes and limit the damage.  Shane Greene and Alex Wilson set down the last eight hitters to preserve the win.

Texas 5 Detroit 3.  Mistakes on fastballs over the plate by Daniel Norris after getting behind in the count account for three runs.  Norris got behind in the count in the third inning, hit a batter and walked in a run.  Detroit also failed to take advantage of further scoring chances after throwing errors by Elvis Andrus in the fourth and ninth innings.

Detroit 9 Texas 3.  Detroit reaches starter A.J Griffin for four home runs, three of them in succession in the first inning.  A two run double by Alex Avila ended Griffin's evening in the fourth inning.  Extra base hits accounted for the scoring for Texas as Justin Verlander pitched seven innings allowing three runs on four hits, a two run double in the fourth and a solo shot in the sixth.

Houston 6 Detroit 2.  Defensive mistakes result in four of Houston's runs.  A ground ball under the glove of Nick Castellanos in the third, a mishandled throw during an attempted rundown between second and third in the eighth inning, and Alex Wilson threw a potential doubleplay ball into center field in the seventh.  A continued lack of hitting also hurt Detroit and fastballs over the plate accounted for Houston's other two runs.

Detroit 6 Houston 3.  Daniel Norris adjusts to the hitters the second time through the batting order and Detroit reaches Houston's bullpen for four runs.  A defensive lapse by Houston in the top of the eighth led to two runs on infield groundouts when Jake Marisnick overthrew the cutoff man allowing Ian Kinsler to reach second base after singling.  Jose Iglesias added a two run shot in the ninth.

Houston 7 Detroit 6.  The gopher ball proves to be Detroit's undoing as Justin Verlander surrendered three in a five run fourth inning.  The bullpen gave up 30th of the year for the winning run in the eighth inning.  Detroit also had a runner gunned down at the plate to end the first and missed chances in the fifth and eighth innings.

Chicago White Sox 8 Detroit 2.  Detroit continues to struggle at the plate getting only six hits and its bullpen can't keep hitters in the ballpark.  Extra base hits resulted in seven of the White Sox' runs.  The Tigers also had a runner thrown out at home on a baserunning mistake in the fourth and another forced at the plate later in the inning.

Game 1.  Chicago White Sox 3 Detroit 1.  Detroit fails to take advantage of nine walks issued by the White Sox in getting only four hits.  A doubleplay in the first inning shortcircuited a rally and there missed chances in the second, fourth, and seventh innings.  Hitters were at times chasing pitches out of the strike zone.

Game 2.  Detroit 4 Chicago White Sox 3.  Buck Farmer strikes out 11 batters allowing only two hits in 6 1/3 innings of work.  White Sox hitters were often late on the fastball.  Detroit's bullpen nearly gave the game away in the bottom of the ninth as Justin Wilson struggled with location giving up three runs before striking out the last two batters.  Even then the swinging strikes were fastballs up in the zone the catcher wanted low and on the inside corner.

Chicago White Sox 7 Detroit 3.  Miguel Gonzalez takes a perfect game into the seventh inning before giving up three straight hits.  A baserunning mistake allowed shortstop Tim Anderson to convert a line drive into an unassisted doubleplay.  Jordan Zimmerman continued to have difficulty keeping pitches in the ball park as he didn't have his slider to turn to.  Hitters sat on the fastball and changeup.  Detroit's hitters continued swinging a pitches out of the strike zone.

Detroit 10 Kansas City 7.  Detroit takes advantage of lack of command by Royals pitchers in drawing six walks, four of which came round to score.  Detroit used a six run fifth and a four run eighth for the win.  Joakim Soria contributed a wild pitch in the eighth.  Kansas City also had a runner picked off first base in the first inning and hit into a doubleplay in the third.  Detroit's bullpen essentially outlasted Kansas City's.

Kansas City 1 Detroit 0.  Detroit hitters had trouble picking up the ball and continue to struggle against a combinations of pitches as Eric Skoglund combines with three relievers to shut down Detroit on three hits.  A hanging slider from Justin Verlander resulted in an RBI single and the game's only run.

Detroit 10 Chicago 1.  Detroit hammers Chicago's starting pitching for the second straight day turning three mistakes into home runs.  Another longball came against the bullpen.  Jordan Zimmerman had control of the slider setting up his other pitches in scattering seven hits over six innings.  Twin killings helped keep Chicago off the scoreboard.  A poor throw from the outfield resulted in another Detroit run.
