CLEVELAND – Armando Galarraga went from unhittable to giving up three homers in an 18-pitch span and the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 6-3 on Monday night.
The Tigers lost slugger Miguel Cabrera to an apparent right ankle injury. He landed awkwardly on the bag while getting back to first base on a pickoff attempt in the seventh inning. Cabrera limped from the field and was taken for X-rays.
DETROIT – A Barclays Capital analyst says the U.S. auto industry is likely to see a bit of a sales rebound in September over poor numbers in August, with an uptick in retail sales to individual drivers.
Analyst Brian Johnson wrote Monday in a note to investors that stronger retail sales would be offset by weaker sales to fleet buyers such as rental car companies. That's good news for automakers because they make far more money on sales to individuals.
Lansing Mayor and Gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero was in WKAR's studios for a state-wide call in show Monday. Bernero took questions from state residents about taxes, the economy and the environment. He said if elected Governor, he'll work with republicans and democrats to fix Michigan's problems.
