The ball was flying around Comerica last night with 3 Tiger homers, and while this included a shot for our hero, it also included a few too many big hits for the Indians. Justin Verlander continued to struggle and put the Tigers in an early hole after allowing 4 runs in the 4th inning. Magglio did all he could, going 2 for 4 with a homer and a pair of RBI, but the Tribe did a little more and pulled out an 11-8 victory in Detroit. The evening’s loss puts the Indians lead back at 1.5 games in the Central Division race.
