Silencing the growls
Kazmir dominates Tigers
The Rays broke the game open with four runs in the seventh, but it wasn't necessary after left-hander Scott Kazmir's performance. Kazmir stymied the Tigers, allowing only three hits in six shutout innings. Carl Crawford continued his hot hitting by going 3-for-4 with two doubles and a two-run homer, his 10th of the season.

Series at a glance:
Bats quelled by Kazmir
After ending a bases-loaded jam with only one run in, Jeremy Bonderman look to have escaped his troublesome first inning. But the Rays roughed him up with seven runs over six-plus frames. Rays ace Scott Kazmir stymied the offense, with the Tigers plating their lone run in the seventh inning against Tampa Bay's bullpen.
