Tigers Get Unlikely Production in Win
The Detroit Tigers used production from two of their newest players to win a second straight game. Pitcher Charlie Furbush won in his major league debut and Outfielder Andy Dirks hit his first career homer, helping Detroit beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6 – 3 Monday night. Victor Martinez hit a two-run double and Jhonny Peralta had a two-run single in the eighth inning to turn a one-run lead into a five-run cushion. Ace Justin Verlander takes the mound for the Tigers tonight. Go Tigers!
