Player Notes
Despite giving up a run, Joe Nathan picked up his 26th save as the Tigers beat the Rays 8-6 in 11 innings Tuesday.

Advice: Fortunately, one of the AL's few relievers consistently worse than Nathan this year, Grant Balfour, gave the Tigers some margin for error by giving up three runs in the top of the 11th. One of those runs scored on a bases-loaded walk and another came on a wild pitch. Nathan got the first two batters in the bottom of the 11th, then gave up a single, a walk and an RBI single before striking out Sean Rodriguez to end it. He's still blown just two saves since the beginning of June, but after a pretty nice run in July, he has looked very shaky again of late.

Joe Nathan picked up his 25th save despite allowing a run in the ninth inning on Saturday.

Advice: David Price twirled eight innings of beautiful one-run ball. Joe Nathan then came in and twirled one inning of failure. Nathan might not have blown the game, but he did allow two hits and a run. Brad Ausmus recently said that he was sticking with Nathan in the ninth, but Joba Chamberlain is lurking and if Nathan doesn't start to improve on his ghastly 5.20 ERA and 1.58 WHIP, his days are numbered.
