Tigers Vs. Angels: Detroit Defeated On Walkoff Single By Alberto Callaspo

Pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo drove in Peter Bourjos on a single off Octavio Dotel in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Angels a 3-2 walkoff win over Detroit early Saturday in Anaheim.

It was the Tigers' third loss in four games, coming after a three-game sweep of AL Central-leading Chicago. The White Sox were defeated, 7-5, by Kansas City Friday, but maintain their one-game lead going into Saturday's games.

Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer went eight innings, allowing five hits and surrendering two earned runs, picking up a no-decision. He left the game with the score tied, 2-2, when Dotel took over. He got two outs, and with two runners on, Callaspo hit for Mike Trumbo, driving in the winning run.

The Tigers look to regroup today, with Justin Verlander scheduled to pitch against C.J. Wilson. First pitch is scheduled for 9:05 p.m. ET.
