A blast and a boom

We've seen this before. Jim Leyland gets angry, blows up a bit (Jason Grilli still getting hit hard in Detroit), and the Tigers respond with runs. Of course, it helps that Seattle is in town.
Dontrelle Willis is back, but in the bullpen. I'm still not sure he can throw strikes.
The Tigers are 18-3 when scoring 5 or more runs; 1-24 when scoring 4 or less. That also means Detroit has given up at least 5 runs in more than half its games.
Detroit is 4-3 when Ryan Raburn starts, making Raburn the only position player with a winning record. The Tigers are 5-1 when Armando Galarraga starts and 5-5 when Kenny Rogers is on the hill.
Tigs only have 2 HR from the No. 3 spot in the batting order.
Playing up the positive: Detroit has won 3 of 4.
