Today, by outscoring them by one, the Tigers dropped the Rangers' run differential down to +33. That means Texas is now only 10 runs ahead of the next best team (Philadelphia), and a mere 14 runs ahead of the next best team in the American League. That is the major post game news today. Charts and poll after the jump.

Oh, and Josh Hamilton might miss a game of two or 40. Panic_medium
