Los Angeles Angels 11 Detroit 9. A good game for those who like watching horsehides fly out of the ballpark. Nine pitches, most of them hanging off speed pitches cleared the fences. Detroit had five, but three came with the bases empty. They came back from a 9-2 deficit with the aid of a two run shot by J.D. Martinez in the sixth and a grand slam by Ian Kinsler in the seventh. Kinsler's shot was the first ball put in play in the inning as two pitchers walked the bases loaded. Victor Martinez tied the game with a solo blast in the eighth, but C.J. Cron ended it in the ninth when Mark Lowe threw a hanging slider over the plate after a leadoff walk.

New York Yankees 5 Detroit 4. Losing pitcher Matt Boyd runs into trouble with the bottom of the New York lineup as the Yankees used a four run inning for the win. New York turned doubleplays in the first and ninth innings to short circuit Detroit rallies - the ninth after Detroit loaded the bases with no out with a run scoring on a doubleplay. A groundout ended the game. Jose Iglesias was caught stealing second in the third and that preceded a single by Camryn Maybin. Justin Upton was thrown out at the plate in the eighth trying to score on a double by Ian Kinsler.

Detroit 7 Chicago White Sox 4. Detroit denies Chris Sale his 10th win of the season taking the lead in sixth when he left a two seam fastball up in the zone to J.D. Martinez. Detroit was able to play small ball in the eighth for three runs against reliever Matt Albers. After a double and a walk, a sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third. Albers mishandled a safety squeeze bunt to allow one run to score. Andrew Romine beat a relay throw at the plate on a fielder's choice against a drawn in infield and Camryn Mabin singled against the drawn in infield for the third run.

Mark Lowe allowed two ninth inning runs forcing Francisco Rodriguez to come in and get the final out.

Detroit 5 Chicago White Sox 2. Pitching by Justin Verlander and defensive plays are the difference. Verlander pitched seven innings allowing five hits, two of them fastballs that cleared the wall. He pitched out of a second and third and no out situation in the third. In the fifth, a diving stop by Jose Iglesias with the infield drawn in kept the go ahead run at third. A barehanded pickup of a bunt and lunging throw on a bunt attempt beat Tyler Saladino to end the inning.

An inability by Carlos Quintana to get third out in the bottom half was the White Sox's undoing. A foul pop up following an intentional walk to Miguel Carbrera was the second out. Quintana walked in the go ahead run after having J.D. Martinez down 0-2 in the count. A single and a two run double followed.

Detroit 3 Toronto 2, 10 innings. Ian Kinlser's chopper against a drawn in outfield with no outs brings the winning run from third. Justin Upton had advanced to third on a fielder's choice/sacrifice bunt. Aaron Sanchez took a one hitter into the ninth inning, but couldn't get anyone out. An RBI double chased Sanchez and a double by Miguel Cabrera tied the game. Toronto was done in by a failure to add to its lead as the Blue Jays were 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position and stranded 11 runners.

Toronto 7 Detroit 2. Justin Zimmerman left too many pitches over the middle of the plate, two of which accounted for five of Toronto's runs. A two run homer to Justin Smoak in the first and a three run bomb to Josh Donaldson in the third. Zimmerman lasted 4 2/3 inngs allowing all seven of Toronto's runs an six of them after Zimmerman had two strikes on the batter. The bullpen fared better allowing only one hit the rest of the way. Detroit also had Jose Iglesias picked off first base in the second inning on a 3-2 count with one out trying to get a head start and the score tied at 2-2.

Chicago White Sox 10 Detroit 9, 12 innings. Detroit pitching fails to hold an early 7-0 lead as Matt Boyd had trouble keeping pitches in the ballpark.

Francisco Rodriguez struggled with command in the ninth inning allowing the tying runs, but didn't get help from his defense. Ian Kinsler pulled first baseman Miguel Cabrera with a poor throw trying to complete a potential game ending doubleplay. Avisail Garcia followed with the gametying RBI single after being down 0-2 in the count and working it 3-2. Aniabal Sanchez took the loss in the 12th surrendering a double, a sacrifice bunt, and a single.

Detroit 11 Chicago White Sox 8. Both starters struggle with command. Detroit took advantage of Miguel Gonalez's inability to finish hitters to jump to an early 10-2. Jordan Zimmerman own struggle allowed the Whi8te Sox back in the game. Errors led to two of Chicago's runs. The bullpen was slightly better though a hanging slider to Tyler Saladino in the ninth accounted for the game's final two runs.

Chicago White Sox 5 Detroit 3. White Sox manufacture four runs on sacrifice flies and ground outs. Mike Pelfrey was pulled after 90 pitches and four runs allowed. Detroit was not able to do much outside the third inning when they got all three of its runs against Chris Sale who would become the major leagues' first 11 game winner. James McCann, though, was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on a single. The Tigers also missed a chance in the ninth with runners at the corners. A ground out ended the game.

Detroit 10 Kansas City 4. Horsehides spent the night flying out of the ballpark. Detroit got six of the seven longballs with Victor Martinez hitting three, all with the bases empty. Only of Detroit's homers came with a man on. Kaufman Stadium is not known be a launching pad.

Kansas City 10 Detroit 3. Bullpen meltdown gives Kansas City nine of their runs. The Royals turned doubleplays in the third and fourth innings and diving stop on a groundball headed for center field in the seventh was turned into force out at second with runners at first and second. A groundout ended the inning. Outfield putouts helped keep Detroit off the scoreboard.

Kansas City 16 Detroit 5. Pitching continues to be a problem as Matt Boyd coundn't make get past the fourth inning allowing seven runs on eight hits. The bullpen again eliminated any chance for a comeback allowing eight runs after Detroit had pulled to within 8-5 in the seventh. Utility player Andrew Romine had to be brought to pitch in the eighth inning getting the final two outs but walking two. The Royals were 13 for 25 with runners in scoring position frequently getting good swings.

Kansas City 2 Detroit 1, 13 innings. Kansas City's ability to manufacture runs proves to be the difference. A ground out in the fifth tied the game at 1-1 after a single and a double. A single, a missed pickoff throw, a sacrifice bunt, two intentional walks, and a single against a drawn in outfield won the game in the 13th inning. Steven got high fastball in third for Detroit's only run. He has doubled off first in the top of the 13th on an attempted hit and run. Detroit's hitters had frequent trouble with a fastball - curveball combination getting only five hits.
