The Tigers pounded the Rockies on Saturday (DET 11, COL 5), and in the process they scored in all eight of their offensive innings. They didn't have to bat in the ninth because it was a home game. Here's the line score:

Detroit is the first team to score in every inning since the Yankees did it to the Blue Jays in April 2006. They're only the fifth team to score in every inning in the last 35 years. The Rockies, coincidentally, have done it twice (May 1999 and September 2001). Only one of those games was in Coors Field too.

"You know, I actually didn't realize it until they put it up on the board," said manager Brad Ausmus to MLB.com's Jason Beck after the game. "Pretty much everybody hit. Everyone contributed in some fashion. It was nice to see ... Our offense has been a little sluggish overall the past week and a half or so, so it's nice to score some runs."

The win extended the Tigers' lead in the AL Central to five games over the Royals. They are 60-47 overall, the third best record in the AL and fourth best record in all of baseball.
