Detroit Tigers Crush White Sox 18-2
This was a day when everybody in the lineup padded their stats. Andy Dirks came in as a defensive replacement after the game was already out of hand and had 4 RBI on two hits. Everything the Tigers hit tonight was falling in. They hit balls hard, they hit bloopers and nubbers, everything fell in …

Chicago pitcher John Danks wasn't ready for the Tigers in the first inning of tonight's game.

Verlander Wins #18, Detroit Tigers Trounce Twins
The Minnesota Twins put some runners on base in the early innings, but failed to score against Detroit's Justin Verlander. By the time the Twinkies got on the scoreboard in the 8th inning, the Tigers had already crossed home plate 7 times. That was more than enough for Verlander to get win nu…
