Joaquin Benoit came in for relief and got the final out of the 8th inning; Jose Valverde pitched the 9th inning and made the game interesting as he always does.
The scoring started today with a Gerald Laird solo home run in the top of the 3rd inning to give the Tigers an early 1-0 lead; Laird had 3 hits today. Jhonny Peralta scored on a wild pitch 5th inning and Prince Fielder scored on a wild pitch in the 6th inning. Ramon Santiago and Prince Fielder had RBI single's in the 8th inning.
The Tigers open a 3 game series at Kansas City tommorow when Justin Verlander takes on Danny Duffy.
