Detroit pulls into a first place with the White Sox in AL Central as Anibal Sanchez shuts out Kansas City on three hits, striking out 10 and walking only one. Detroit might be able to overtake the White Sox afterall if they had a decent road which they don't and tonight is the last home game of the season.

Andy Dirks' slide into second base to break up a double play gives Detroit the winning run in the eighth inning. Alex Avila had a two run homer and Austin Jackson hit a solo shot in the fourth inning to bring Detroit back from a 4-1 deficit. The 5-4 win put Detroit in first place in AL Central when Chicago lost to Cleveland 6-4. Joaquin Benoit got the win in relief.

Detroit nearly wastes a record setting performance by Doug Fister in a 5-4 win over Kansas City after blowing a 4-0 lead. Fister set an American League record by striking out nine straight batters and came within one of the major league record set by Tom Seaver of the Mets against San Diego. Fister ran out of gas in the eighth inning and Joaquin Benoit, who has been prone to giving up home runs, gave up another one, an opposite field solo shot to Billy Butler in the ninth. Alex Avila's bases loaded ground out provided the winning run. First baseman Brayan Pena made a diving stop on Avila's ground ball, but his only play was at first base.

The Royals handed Detroit the game with five errors good for four runs, two of unearned.

Detroit's bullpen falters once again is 4-2 loss to Minnesota halving their lead over the White Sox to one game. An error by Prince Fielder followed by a home run by Ryan Doumit in the seventh put the Twin ahead 4-2. A two run homer by Omar Infante tied the score in the eighth, but a two run double by Doumit off losing pitcher Brayan Villareal in the bottom half gave the Twins a 4-2 lead and eventual victory.

Cincinnati's Homer Bailey throws the season's seventh no hitter beating Pittsburgh 1-0. Bailey retired the first six batters before third baseman Scott Rolen booted Clint Barnes' ground ball leading off the third. Bailey allowed only one other runner - a walk to Andrew McCutchen in the seventh. He stole second, but was thrown out trying to steal third. Pittsburgh also assured themselves of a 20th straight nonwinning season with the loss, extending its North American professional sports record for futility.

Detroit's bullpen nearly melts down again in a 6-4 over Minnesota. Justin Verlander had staked the Tigers to 6-0 lead after seven innings, but Joaquin Benoit gave up another home run to Ryan Doumit, this time a grand slam in the eighth inning to cut the lead to 6-4 and had to be relieved by Alburqurque who walked a batter before getting the final out. Jose Valverde allowed a baserunner before getting three flyball outs for his 32nd save. Miguel Cabrera moved into a tie for the league in home runs with Josh Hamilton with 43.

Detroit clinches AL Central division title with a 6-3 win over Kansas City. Rick Porcello pitched 5 1/3 innings giving up one run to get his tenth win of the season. Miguel Cabrera led the attack with four hits, including his 44th home run of the season in a five run sixth inning. Cabrera now leads in home runs with 44, batting average at .329, and RBI's with 137.

MIguel Cabrera wins the Triple Crown leading the American League with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs, and 139 RBI's. He becomes the 15th player to accomplished this feat. The last time was in 1967 when Carl Yaztremski of Boston won the coveted title. Cabrera's achievement was finalized when New York pinchhit for Curtis Granderson in the eighth inning against Boston, possibly out of respect for Cabrera, but more likely when you're already up 14-2, a third home run would have amounted to rubbing it in.

Cabrera was 0 for 2 and was taken out of the game, won by Detroit 1-0, in the fourth inning.

Terry Francona has been fired as manager of the Red Sox after one season. Miami manager Ozzie Guillen may be following Francona to the unemployment line.

Don't you mean Bobby Valentine? And Francona has just been named the new manager of the Cleveland Indians.

Atlanta and Texas are eliminated. The St. Louis-Atlanta featured a controversial infield fly that actually drifted into left center field.

Thank you Baltimore. The Orioles will give the Yankees all they want, as they only finished one game back in the AL East standings. If they manage to beat the Yankees, or extend the series so whoever comes out of that one being real tired, it will help the Tigers immensely. The Tigers should be able to beat Oakland with their starting pitching, and you know Cabrera and Fieler won't stay silent long with their bats.
