Locked-in slider helping Joe Nathan lock in
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

In the wake of a trade for possible replacement Joakim Soria, Tigers closer Joe Nathan managed his most impressive performance of the season Thursday night. He fanned the side against the host Angels to collect his 21st save. And he had a rediscovered slider to thank for it.

Nathan has been working on that pitch recently. That work certainly paid off in that appearance.

"That was as long as I've seen his slider, I think all year possibly," Brad Ausmus told mlbblogs.com. "It was clear that the hitters weren't picking up the rotation on his slider. It looked like a fastball to them and they swung right over the top. That's the slider I remember facing. ... You start your swing and it just drops out of the strike zone. It almost has a split-finger action to it."

Nathan has been coming around after his latest slump. He has pitched scoreless ball in his last three outings with five strikeouts and just one hit allowed in three innings. He has picked up two saves in the process.

Slumping Eugenio Suarez scores twice in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Tigers got a solid contribution from infielder Eugenio Suarez Thursday, in a 6-4 win over the Angels.

Suarez has struggled in the month of July, hitting just .240 with seven runs scored in 15 games. He is still hitting .263/.351/.407 through the first 38 games of his career.
