Brewers Blown Out in 1-10 Loss

From Sportsline.com:

Rookie Zach Miner was thrilled to pitch his first major league complete game.

Magglio Ordonez hit two home runs and Craig Monroe and Ivan Rodriguez added one each to lift the Tigers to a 10-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

"I've never went nine innings," said Miner, who has had five complete games in the minor leagues, all seven innings or shorter. "I like to get the cheap sevens, I had a five-inning complete game too with rain, but that one really doesn't count."

This one did for the Tigers, who are now a major-league best 28-10 on the road, five more wins than any other team.

Meanwhile, Miner (3-1) efficiently kept the Brewers off-balance with a big breaking ball and a fastball in the low 90s.

"As he got into the game, he started using his changeup and that made him a whole different pitcher," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said.
