The Tigers had the winning run on third base in the eighth, ninth and 11th innings and loaded the bases with one out in the 13th, but the White Sox bullpen kept Detroit at bay.
Yep, that's right. All the Tigers needed to do to beat the ChiSox last night was bring home a guy from 3rd base 1 out of 4 times. They stranded five guys in scoring position AFTER the 8th inning!
On Saturday, June 25, the Tigers were 1 game over .500. Sunday's game featured Detroit's ace Jeremy Bonderman against a depleted D-backs lineup that was missing Luis Gonzalez and Troy Glaus. Bonderman promptly gave up eight earned runs in two innings and the Tigers got pummeled 13-7. Add the two one-run losses to the first place White Sox and the Tigers have lost 4 out of 5 with the Yankees coming to town. This could get ugly.
