COMERICA PARK:

    Eric Young snapped a 4-all tie with an RBI-1B/T-7th to give Texas a
5-4 win in the opener of a three game Downtown Detroit series on
Tuesday evening.
    It quelled a Rangers slump as it was just their 3rd win in 10 games.
It was the Tigers second straight loss, making them 3-&-2 on the 10 game
homestand.
    Texas grabbed the early lead on a 3rHR (#26) to LField by Mark
Teixeria in the T-3rd.
    Detroit quickly grabbed one back on an Omar Infante RBI-1N/B-3rd.
    The Rangers immediately got that run back on a Kevin Mench solo
(#15)/T-4th.
    The Tigers then tied it on an RBI-1B by Carlos Guillen then a 2R-1B
by Marcus Thames in the B-6th.
    Young's RBI basehit in the T-7th then won it for the Rangers, part
of his 3-for-5 effort on the night. Alex Sanchez went 2-for-3 for Detroit.
    Frank Francisco got the win (3-&-1) with a perfect 1.1-INN of relief
of Kenny Rogers. Ex-Tiger Francisco Cordova got the save (#32).
    Tiger starter Nate Robertson took the loss (9-&-6).
    Rangers All-Star SStop Michael Young was a late scratch due to
back stiffness.

      TEX     5-9-0, 7-LOB
      DET     4-8-1, 5-LOB

EXTRA INNINGS:

    The Tigers purchased the contract of RHP John Ennis from 3A
Toledo and designated reliever Danny Patterson for assignment.
Patterson had been tossing batting practice-like pitches since
injury rehab return from Toledo. Four right arm injuries in his
five year Tiger career ruined the onetime double-play grounder
specialist. Patterson hadn't won a big league game since 2001
and was 0-&-4 with a 4.75-ERA in 37 Tiger games this season.
    Rangers RHander Chan Ho Park makes an injury rehab start
for 3A Oklahoma City on Thursday.
