Tigers flex muscles in Philly
Bonderman stays perfect
Jeremy Bonderman gave up four home runs, but the Tigers picked him up and helped him improve to 7-0. Pudge Rodriguez belted a three-run shot and drove in five runs, and Sean Casey added four hits and three RBIs.

Series at a glance:
Power surge falls short
Jimmy Rollins went deep twice, while Ryan Howard, Greg Dobbs and Shane Victorino also homered, but a tough night for Jon Lieber and the bullpen denied the Phillies a victory in the opener. Lieber gave up six earned runs on 10 hits over five innings.
