ANAHEIM, CA - The bats fell silent for the Detroit Tigers as the LA Angels picked up a 2-1 win last night in Anaheim. The only offensive punch for the Tigers came from Miguel Cabrera, who hit a solo home run, his 16th of the season. Drew Smyly took the hard-luck loss on the hill, giving up both runs on 4 hits while striking out 11. Justin Verlander will tow the slab for Detroit tonight.
Elsewhere, the White Sox won at Minnesota 9-5, and the Cubs edged St. Louis 7-6 at Wrigley Field.
