    Milton Bradley the home game gave
the Seattle Mariners a 5-3 win over
Tiger ace Justin Verlander late night
Tuesday out west.
    Bradley had a 2rHR (#3) and 3-RBIs
including the winning run in the B-8th
to hand Verlander his first May loss in
five starts to snap Verlander's 4-game
winning streak.    
    Verlander (L, 5-3) went 7.1-IP to get charged with 5-R/5-ER on 7-H & 2-W
with 8-K. He threw 78 of his 117 pitches for strikes. Verlander allowed more
than 4-H for the first time in his last six starts and gave up more than 4-R/4-ER
for the first time since his second start of the season (6-R/6-ER in a ND at
Comerica Park vs Cleveland back on April 11TH.
    After JV got Ichiro Suzuki to strikeout for the second time in the game to
start the B-8th, Chone Figgins doubled to RField. Franklin Gutierrez then walked
and Bradley delivered an RBI-1B to RCField with Figgins sliding around the tag
at the plate on a slightly tardy throw home by Magglio Ordonez for the go-ahead
run. That chased Verlander. Joel Zumaya came on and got Jose Lopez to fly to
shallow CField, but Gutierrez scored on the sac-fly with the throw-in by Austin
Jackson well off line to the 1Base side of the plate.
    M's closer David Aardsma arrived in the T-9th for a 1-2-3 save (#10) and got
Jackson to strikeout swinging to end the ballgame.
    Bradley had given the Mariners a 2-0/B-1st lead with his 2rHR to the first row
of the RField seats.
    Detroit came right back to tie it in the T-2nd on an RBI-1B by Danny Worth and
then an RBI-2 by Jackson.
    Brandon Inge went down the LField line and off the top of the fence for a T-6th
solo homer (#5 to put the Tigers on top 3-2.
    Gutierrez retied the contest by muscling an inside-out swing for a B-6th solo
homerun (#5) to the first row of the RField seats.
    Bradley then keyed the 2-R/B-8th for Seattle.
    Mariners starter Doug Fister took a no-decision in a solid start, scattering 9-H with
0-W & 1-K in his 7-IP. First M's reliever Shawn Kelley was credited with the win (3-0)
for his scoreless T-8th effort that included 1-W & 1-K.  
    Inge was 2-for-4 as the only Tiger with multiple basehits.
    Gutierrez was 2-for-3 and Bradley 2-for-4 for the Mariners.
    Detroit is just 1-3 in two trips to eattle this season and are now 3-3 on the current
7-game west coast swing.

    DET     3-9-0, 7-LOB      (L) Verlander, 5-3
    SEA     5-7-1, 4-LOB     (W) Kelley, 3-0; (S) Aardsma, #10


    Jackson returned to action for the first time since his Saturday beaning at the LA
    With Miguel Cabrera in Miami, FL for the birth of his second child, Don Kelly played
1Base for Detroit and Ordonez assumed the cleanup spot in the lineup. Cabrera will
also be absent Wednesday.
    Seattle's Jason Vargas (3-2) and Detroit's Jeremy Bonderman (2-2) are the probables
for the Wednesday matinee series finale.


    Carlos Guillen had three doubles (3-for-5) and scored twice while Max Scherzer
struck-out seven Chiefs in 7-IP to get the victory (2-0) as the 3A Toledo Mud Hens were
6-3 winners at Syracuse Tuesday night. Tiger prospect Ryan Strieby went 2-for-5 with
a double and 5-RBI.
