Nate Robertson(2-3) got the start for Detroit and pitched good going 5.2 innings,giving up 3 runs, and striking out 10 Rangers. He now has 50 strikouts on the season,tied for second in the A.L. Robertson pitched good but Kenny Rogers(5-2) of the Rangers pitched even better. He threw 6.1 solid innings and gave up only 1 run. Hank Blalock, Alfonso Soriano and Michael Young all homered for the Rangers to put away the Tigers. The lone Tigers' run came off a Rondell White single. Detroit is now 17-19 on the season.
Notes-It took the Tigers till late June to get to 17 victories last season....White's RBI was his 30th of the season....Alex Sanchez (groin) missed his second straight game....Robertson's 10k's were a career high....Greg Norton added 2 hits today....
