Detroit fell into a first-place tie, as the offense remained in a funk, scoring its lone run on a Placido Polanco RBI single in the eighth inning after being shut out the previous night. That wasn't enough to pick up Alfredo Figaro, who was lifted after allowing two runs in 1 1/3 innings.
Rios 2 (24, 2nd base off Perry/Laird, 2nd base off Figaro/Laird), Podsednik (30, 2nd base off Figaro/Laird), Quentin (3, 2nd
base off Galarraga/Laird), Lillibridge (6, 2nd base off Lyon/Laird), Kotsay (3, 3rd base off Figaro/Laird).
