Inge, Guillen lead Tigers over Orioles 12-9

DETROIT – Brandon Inge drove in four runs, Carlos Guillen knocked in three and the Detroit Tigers outscored the Baltimore Orioles 12-9 Monday.

Starters Kevin Millwood of Baltimore and rookie Andy Oliver were gone by the end of the second inning. The Tigers led 8-7 after the third and managed to keep the lead the rest of the way.

Inge, Guillen and Johnny Damon each had three of Detroit's 17 hits. Brennan Boesch was the only starter without one. He became the first Tigers rookie to walk four times in a game since Steve Boros in 1961.

Baltimore's Jake Fox hit the game's lone home run. Matt Wieters had a two-run double off Jose Valverde in the ninth, but the Detroit closer escaped a two-on, one-out jam to end it.
