...Matt Murton hit his second grand slam of the year last night.  It was also the Tigers' first grand slam in extra innings since Glenn Davis hit one in 1996.

...Craig Brazell continues to knock them out: he has now hit a homer in 5 straight games.  The last Tiger to do that was Akinobu Mayumi in 1986.

...Shinjiro Hiyama picked up another pinch-hit hit last night (a double to right) and now has 111 pinch-hit hits in his career.
