There were a number of reasons that manager Brad Ausmus said factored into him going to K-Rod in a four-out save situation, but chief among them was that he felt this game was a must-win. Coming off a pair of walkoff losses yesterday, thought the club needed to stop the bleeding: "I just felt we needed to nail this one down."

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has been emphatic about his reluctance to go to closer Francisco Rodriguez in a 4-out save situation. Made it clear he didn't want to do it again after June 1 game in Anaheim. He did on Monday night, bringing in K-Rod with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth. That decision paid off. 4-2 final as Tigers take first game vs. Red Sox at Fenway

Jeremy Hellickson's trade value continues to go up as he pitched six scoreless innings tonight against the Marlins. He only had one strikeout, but he does have a career-best K rate to go with a 3.65 ERA. He looks like a viable back-end rotation option -- in fact, maybe for the Marlins.

With their 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rockies, the Orioles have now ripped off five straight victories. It's the fifth time this season they've won at least five in a row. If Detroit holds on to beat Boston, the O's will have a two-game lead in the AL East.
