TODAY'S WRAPS: September 17, 2007
Jhonny be good
Tigers tamed late
Big hits combined with the Tribe's sloppy defense in the fourth gave Detroit the early edge. But despite Kenny Rogers' solid outing, the Indians came roaring back in the eighth against Joel Zumaya. The Tigers' win streak was snapped as they couldn't get anything started in extras.

Series at a glance:
Blake powers win
Jhonny Peralta's solo shot in the bottom of the fourth cut into Detroit's lead, but it looked like the Tigers would hold on. Then in the eighth, a rally was capped by Peralta's second dinger of the night to tie it. Casey Blake, who sent the Indians to a walk-off win on Friday, did it again with a homer in the 11th inning.
