AL Quote of the Night

"That's a horse."

-- Tigers Manager Jim Leyland confusing barnyard animals with the ace of his staff, Justin Verlander

Detroit Tigers 2, Boston Red Sox 0

Justin Verlander struck out eight over eight scoreless innings to help Detroit avoid being swept in Boston. Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz was no slouch himself, allowing just two runs over seven innings but picked the wrong day to be on the mound. Buchholz has had some truly bad luck of late, having lost his last two starts despite giving up just three earned runs over his last 13 innings. Verlander capped his fine performance by retiring 16 of the final 19 batters he faced.

New York Yankees 11, Seattle Mariners 1

CC Sabathia allowed one run and three hits while striking out 10 over eight innings to stymie the Mariners while his teammates teed off. New York had six players tally multi-hit games led by Hideki Matsui's 4-for-5, five-RBI performance that featured two two-run homers. Seattle's one run came on a Jack Wilson home run - the light-hitting shortstop's first ever as an American Leaguer and fifth of the season.
