Tigers Rout Angels

Jeremy Bonderman came off the disabled list and pitched 8 shutout innings as the Tigers blanked the Angels 12-0 this afternoon. Bonderman struggled with his control early in the game allowing 5 walks and hitting a batter. He loaded the bases twice in the first 4 innings but worked out of it both times. He cruised through the last 4 innings allowing just 4 hits in all and actually kept his pitch count under 100 despite all the walks.

Bonderman got plenty of hitting support for a change. The amazing Magglio Ordonez continued his torrid hitting going 4 for 4 with 3 more doubles, 3 runs and 3 RBI. He now leads the league in doubles (23), extra base hits (35), slugging (.710), RBI (45) and runs (42). Carlos Guillen also had a big day smashing 2 home runs and driving in 5 runs. Gary Sheffield added a homer and single and Curtis Granderson contributed a double and a single.

Having taken 2 out 3 from the west division leading Angels. the Tigers now face Cleveland in a big three game series between the top two teams in the Central. Tomorrow night, it will be Nate Robertson versus Paul Byrd.
