GAME RECAP

IMPACT PLAYER

Jim Thome, Twins

With two blasts, Thome became the eighth player ever to hit 600 home runs. His 599th homer was a two-run shot and his 600th was a three-run shot.

BY THE NUMBERS

5 Runs given up in six innings by Francisco Liriano, who still managed to earn his eighth victory of 2011.

10 Saves for Joe Nathan, who needed only seven pitches for a 1-2-3 ninth.

2 Size of Detroit's lead in the AL Central.

ON DECK

Nick Blackburn is 4-5 with a 5.03 ERA in his career vs. the Tigers. He has the unenviable assignment of facing Justin Verlander.

LA VELLE E. NEAL III
