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.
