The Tigers have won five in a row. Unfortunately, they haven't gained any ground in the Central as the White Sox picked up a fifth consecutive in extras at KC last night.

The Cubs and a third of the ticketed Cubs fans endured a nearly four hour rain delay yesterday after the Monsoon of 2012. Voni and I caught two and a half innings at Mikeyfest.
