Left-hander Nate Robertson allowed four hits while striking out five in 7 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Tigers took advantage of some Baltimore miscues in a victory over the Orioles. Placido Polanco and Magglio Ordonez each knocked in a run for Detroit.
Some defensive mishaps cost the Orioles as they fell to the Tigers. Righty Jaret Wright cruised through five innings, but he had to leave in the sixth with tightness in his right shoulder. Corey Patterson connected on his first home run of the season.
