Quote: "You know what I like about him? He just plays. He's from the old school, it seems like." -- Tigers manager Buddy Bell on Red Sox's Nomar Garciaparra, who hit two homers against Detroit.It's a fact: The Tigers have lost seven of their last eight games and given up double-digit run totals in six of their 13 losses.Who's hot: Indians reliever Jose Mesa, unhappy about being banished from the closer role for the second straight season, allowed three hits and no earned runs in 2 2/3 innings against Chicago.
