   McCann sent an 0-2 pitch from Tony Sipp (2-1) into the Tigers' bullpen, just beyond the reach of leaping left fielder Colby Rasmus. It was the second homer of his career.

   Alex Wilson (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.

   Detroit led 5-0 after six innings. Pinch hitter Preston Tucker tied it with one out in the ninth, connecting off Joakim Soria for his first career homer.
