Joaquin Benoit got the win for Detroit after pitching a scoreless ninth inning. Doug Fister made the start and went 6 1/3, allowing three runs on 10 hits to go along with six strikeouts.

Prince Fielder hit a solo homerun to tie the game at four in the seventh inning and also had an RBI double in the first.
