Tigers update

Detroit came back to win yesterday when trailing after eight innings for only the second time this season. The Tigers have won five of their past six games to move within one of the .500 mark. They swept the Orioles in Baltimore last weekend, rallying in the seventh against the bullpen in the final game to ruin a quality start from Chen. The Tigers' bullpen has posted a 2.46 ERA in 29 games since April 30, allowing 22 earned runs in 80 1/3 innings. Closer Ugueth Urbina had an 0.93 ERA in his past 17 outings. Johnson, a former Oriole, has gone eight innings in his past four starts. He's trying to become the first Tigers pitcher to go eight or more innings in five consecutive starts since former Oriole Jeff Robinson in 1988.
