Detroit Tigers Come Back From 7 Run Deficit, Win 9-8 On Cabrera Homer
Brad Penny has struggled this season as a Tiger pitcher. He didn't get much help from his defense today and that set the stage for a fun day for Chicago hitters. An error on what could have been an inning-ending doubleplay in the 4th led to 5 White Sox runs (4 unearned) and the Tigers were down 6-…
Verlander Wins #21, Detroit Tigers Ambush White Sox 8-1
Chicago pitcher John Danks wasn't ready for the Tigers in the first inning of tonight's game.

Detroit Tigers Come Back, Then Blow Lead And Lose
Tiger pitching has been questionable at best on days when Justin Verlander and lately, Doug Fister aren't on the mound.
