After a furious Rays comeback in the top of the eighth, the Tigers answered with three runs in the bottom half, led by Ryan Raburn, who scored the go-ahead run. Nate Robertson cruised through 7 2/3 innings, striking out a season-high nine before the bullpen allowed a game-tying grand slam. Raburn, Magglio Ordonez and Curtis Granderson each scored twice.
