Blowout Ends Tigers Win Streak

Well, as the old saying goes, you can't win ‘em all. After four straight victories, the Chicago White Sox finally brought the Tigers back down to Earth, getting a victory and moving closer to clinching the AL Central crown.

Detroit Tigers - 71-87, 4th in AL Central
The Tigers remain a win away from tying last year's win total, as the White Sox clobbered the Tigers 8-2 on Wednesday night. Sean Douglass took the loss as the starter, giving up four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings. Douglass wasn't the only one that couldn't slow the White Sox, as every reliever that pitched more than 1/3 of an inning gave up at least one more run to Chicago. The Tiger offense was able to manage 10 hits, but they weren't able to consistently convert those hits into runs, as a Carlos Pena solo home run and a Magglio Ordonez RBI groundout were the only two runs the Tigers were able to manage. The Tigers though can still make a stand against the White Sox and take three of four from Chicago with a win on Thursday afternoon. Jason Grilli will face Freddy Garcia at 1:05pm. The game will also be broadcast live on ESPN with its playoff implications.
