Well so much for the loss of Mike Maroth from the rotation having a huge devastating effect on the Tigers starting pitching. Zack Minor allows only a single run in the ninth inning while throwing a complete game five hitter. Minor is demonstrating he belongs in the major leagues. He is now 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA. He walked only two Brewers and struck out five. All the while only needing 84 pitches to complete the game.

Meanwhile Detroit’s offense experienced a power surge to support the young right-hander. The Tigers bombed four home runs including two by Magglio Ordonez to put up double-digit runs. Maggs ended up with four RBI on the evening and both Pudge’s and Monroe’s homers were two run shots. Monroe added a sac fly for a three RBI game and Curtis Granderson drove in the other run with a double. Detroit scored more runs (10) than they had hits (9) off the Milwaukee pitchers. The Tigers are now 28-10 on the road, which stands as the best road mark in baseball.
