DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have seen both ends of the American League pitching spectrum in their last two games.After being slowed by Seattle All-Star Cliff Lee, the Tigers became the latest team to batter slumping Kevin Millwood in a 12-9 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday.
• The top seven hitters in the Tigers' order all reached base at least twice.
• Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs and now has 71 RBIs on the season through 81 games, good for the second most by a Tiger in the first half of a season over the past 50 years.
• Orioles first baseman Jake Fox hit the game's lone home run, a solo shot, despite the two teams combining for 21 runs and 31 hits.
• The game's opening two innings took 80 minutes to play and required 145 pitches to get 12 outs.
Adam Jones made the final out of Baltimore's first two innings, and three of its first four. He singled to lead off the seventh, meaning all 18 starters had reached base via a hit or walk. ... Tigers reliever Joel Zumaya will undergo surgery on July 12 to stabilize a broken bone in his pitching elbow. He will miss the rest of the season with the injury, sustained while throwing a pitch on June 28. ... Damon now has 2,499 career hits. He reached base in the eighth inning on what could have been hit 2,500, but after the Tigers had already retrieved the ball as a memento, the play was ruled an error on third baseman Miguel Tejada.
