The Tiger’s rally last night at Anaheim came up a run short as the Angels held off Detroit 6-to-5. The Tigers fell behind 6-to-0 after the Angels got to Detroit starter Rick Porcello, but they battled back as Brandon Inge had a two-run double in the sixth and Miguel Cabrera a three-run double in the seventh. However, the Anaheim bullpen finally shut the door with ex-Tiger closer Fernando Rodney notching his fifth save and second in-a-row over his former teammates.
The Angels have won five straight including the first two in this four-game series with Detroit while the Tigers have dropped five of six with their record now back to .500 at 7-and-7. Jeremy Bonderman gets the start tonight for the Tigers. The White Sox last night ended Tampa Bay’s seven game winning streak with a 4-to-1 win over the visiting Rays while in New York, the Mets blanked the Cubs 4-to-0.
