Tigers reliever Alex Wilson, who recorded a pair of outs in the bottom of the seventh, said it felt good to be used in a critical situation again. Admitted that this is the healthiest he's felt all season. Sounds like the All-Star break did him a world of good. Went up north with family, didn't even touch a ball. Said he can now tell a difference even when playing catch. Seems like it is paying dividends. Manager Brad Ausmus said that he wasn't sure if he's seen Wilson throw the ball that well all season.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera becomes only the eighth player in MLB history to reach the 400 home run and 1500 RBI milestone in the first 14 seasons played. His 2RBI single was more than just historic, though. It was also the sort of timely production that has been conspicuously lacking for Tigers lately. Said manager Brad Ausmus: "There's no question we've been kind of searching in recent games for that kind of hit."

Big night for Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, who now has 43 four-hit games in his career and passed the 1,500 RBI milestone with a clutch two-run single in the seventh inning. That's one way to cease discussion about a slump...

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said yesterday he doesn't see the Tigers being sellers at the trade deadline. Standing pat, however, seems to be a bit more of a realistic option. When asked today about that course of action, he said: "I think it's a real possibility."

Nothing has changed with respect to the Tigers' plan to monitor rookie pitcher Michael Fulmer's innings. Team will continue to try to take advantage of off days and opportunities to get him out of the game early when possible. Said manager Brad Ausmus: "We haven't put a hard number on it. We'll see how it goes."

All-time #MLBRank: No. 8 Ty Cobb

Cobb, the only player to lead his league in hits eight times, ranks second all time in hits, runs and triples, as well as fourth in doubles and stolen bases. His 54 steals of home are most all time, and his .367 career batting average is also the best ever. Nos. 10-1

Tigers' deadline status: buyers

Per usual, Detroit's biggest need is pitching, both starting and relieving, Jim Bowden writes. The team's farm system isn't deep, but there's still enough to make a couple of trades. Trade deadline objectives (Insider)
