Cesar Izturis committed his ninth error today, bobbling Austin Jackson’s ground ball leading off the top of the fourth inning. Jackson stole second, but held as Brad Bergesen retired the next two batters.
Ryan Raburn followed with a grounder up the middle that looked like it would produce the Tigers’ first run, but Izturis ranged far to his left to make the pickup, and his throw narrowly beat Raburn for the final out.
Raburn is the only Detroit baserunner. Bergesen has thrown 42 pitches, 27 for strikes.
Nick Markakis is 3-for-3 with an RBI. Luke Scott has an RBI single and a walk.
Instant update: Jhonny Peralta singled with one out in the fifth to break up the no-hitter, and Brandon Inge tied the game with a home run.
