So much for the solid run by Rick Porcello. Oh well, these kinds of nights are to be expected with young pitchers. This was Porcello's worst outing since April 29 vs. the Yankees. If Porcello follows this setback with another five wins in a row, we'll take it.
Meanwhile, the news from Tigers.com is that Jeremy Bonderman is awaiting word on his next start. Bonderman fired eight shutout innings on Sunday for Triple-A Toledo. He has not been told when, or where, his next appearance will be.
Marcus Thames is nine games into a rehab stint at Toledo, where he is batting .263-1-5.
