Detroit 9 Minnesota 6.  Detroit's bullpen outlasts Minnesota when they were able to make pitches when they needed to with the exception of Bruce Rondon who got the first out in the eighth without any difficulty then put enough pitches over the plate to allow the Twins to cut the lead to 6-5.  Shane Green pitched out of a bases load jam in the seventh allowing an inherited runner though he was victimized by a fielding error by Ian Kinsler.  Defensive miscues by the Twins in the second, including two on one play allowed Kinsler to score - the catcher for allowing a poor throw to get by him and the pitcher for a poor throw that should have gotten Kinsler at the plate.

Kansas City 5 Detroit 3, 12 innings.  Consecutive mistakes in the top the 12th give the Royals the win.  Drew Ver Hagen surrendered home runs in the 12th and a hanging curve ball in the sixth by Justin Verlander accounted for the longballs.  Verlander contributed a wild pitch in the fourth led to a second run in the fourth.  Outside of a three sixth, Detroit hitters did very little, getting only two hits against the Royals bullpen.

Kansas City 3 Detroit 1.  A baserunning mistake in the eighth inning proves costly for Detroit.  Mikie Mahtook didn't check to see where right fielder was and was doubled off first base on the line drive to the right fielder.  The play cost Detroit a run.  A fastball over the inside part of the plate to Whit Merrifield account for the Royals' first run.  Aggressive baserunning by Eric Hosmer who went from first to third on a single, then scored on a short flyball to left when James McCann couldn't hold onto a good throw.

Kansas City 16 Detroit 2.  Anibal Sanchez and five relievers pitch batting practice to the Royals.  Sanchez reverted back to previous form in allowing four runs on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings.  The bullpen did the rest getting shelling for a nine run seventh inning and a three run ninth.  Utility player Andrew Romine had to finish the game after Bruce Rondon was ejected for hitting a batter in the ninth.  Jose Iglesias contributed a base running blunder in the fifth getting thrown out at third trying to stretch an RBI double into a triple.

Detroit 5 Houston 3.  Detroit rallies against Houston's bullpen in the seventh with timely two out hitting to cap a three run inning.  A hit batter and a wild pitch led to the first run of the inning.  A walk, a stolen base and the ability to advance the baserunner brought home the final run in the eighth.  Two doubleplays and Ian Kinsler running down a foul fly in the eighth helped keep Houston at three runs.

Detroit 13 Houston 1.  Detroit tees off on an ineffective Houston pitching staff and the Astros fail to take advantage of a struggling Justin Verlander.  Houston left the bases loaded in the second and stranded two runners in each of the third and fourth innings.  A running catch by Andrew Romine to start the sixth prevented a rally from starting.  Detroit sends Closer Justin Wilson and catcher Alex Avila to the Cubs for a shortstop prospect.  Weren't they able to find one at first base.

New York Yankees 7 Detroit 3.  Yankees jump on an ineffective Michael Fulmer for seven runs, six earned.  Fulmer lost command of his pitches after the third inning and Ian Kinsler booted a routine doubleplay grounder allowing Aaron Judge to take second on the miscue.  Detroit also left the bases loaded in the first and ninth innings.

Detroit 4 New York Yankees 3.  The longball and the inability of the Yankees to get the key hit allow Detroit to escape with the win.  A hanging slider to James Hicks accounted for three runs and a slider to Justin Upton accounted for the other.  Anibal Sanchez was able to work the change up and slider to hold the Yankees to one hit in six at bats with runners in scoring position.  Double plays aided Sanchez and reliever Shane Greene.

Detroit 2 New York Yankees 0.  Jordan Zimmerman uses command of his pitches to limit the Yankees to six hits in seven innings of work.  New York failed to take advantage of chances in the third and sixth innings.  Mistakes on sliders from Masahiro Tanaka accounted for Detroit's scoring.  A defensive mistake by centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and aggressive baserunning by Mikie Mahtook played a role in Detroit's second run.

Detroit 7 Baltimore 5.  First inning home runs and poor fielding by the Orioles in a five run third allow Detroit to hold on for the win.  A double play ball was booted allowing two runs to score in the third.  A double play by Detroit in the fifth stopped one rally and a force in the seventh blunted another.  The Orioles had another runner caught stealing, but were able to turn a triple play in the second.

Detroit 5 Baltimore 2.  Both teams had two home runs.  The difference was one of Detroit's longballs came with runners on base.  Justin Upton sent a hanging slider on the inside part of the plate in the eighth inning to give Detroit the win.  Justin Verlander mixed in the slider and curveball with the fastball to limit the Orioles to two runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.  Mikie Mahtook made two running catches, one took away a potential home run and Jose Iglesias snagged grounder of the middle for the second out of the eighth.

Baltimore 5 Detroit 2.  Baltimore's pitching staff shuts down Detroit after a first inning home run.  Detroit would only get three hits after the first inning as they had trouble with the slider and cut fastballs.  There were missed chances in the third and eighth innings.  Baltimore also got three home runs.

Baltimore 12 Detroit 3.  Anibal Sanchez fools no one as the Baltimore sends horsehides into the seats.  Sanchez surrendered three consecutive gopher balls in the first and needed only 17 pitches to find himself in a 4-0 hole.  The Orioles connected for consecutive shots in the fifth.  Detroit also hurt itself stranding 12 runners and hitting into two inning ending double plays.
