Interleague struggles continue as Tigers lose to D-Backs, 7-6

Tiger fans were happy to see the return of their 1984 heroes, Kirk Gibson & Alan Trammell (Arizona's manager & bench coach respectively), but not so much for Wily Mo Pena, who hit a solo home run in the eighth inning as the Diamondbacks beat the Detroit Tigers, 7-6.

Detroit’s Phil Coke went 4 2-3 innings, allowing six runs—five earned—and seven hits. Fellow left-hander Zach Duke pitched four innings for the Diamondbacks, giving up six runs and seven hits.

Jhonny Peralta helped Detroit get off to a fast start, hitting a two-run double off the left-field fence in the first inning, missing a grand slam by only a few feet. Casper Wells and Magglio Ordonez started the bottom of the third with back-to-back doubles, and Victor Martinez drove in another run with a single.
