AL notables

* Tampa Bay has given up four grand slams in the last six games.
* Ranger Laynce Nix, recalled from Triple A Oklahoma before the game, had three run-scoring singles.
* Instead of playing Chicago, his former team, for the first time, Magglio Ordonez was en route to Detroit from Montreal after seeing a hernia specialist, who could not conclude that Ordonez has a hernia. "It's very puzzling," Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said.
* Cleveland's Casey Blake, whose 26 errors last season were the most by any third baseman, is making a successful transition to right field this season and has played errorless ball in his 11 starts there.
