Detroit remained 4 1/2 games behind Cleveland for first place in the AL Central, as the Indians beat Seattle, 6-5, Thursday night. The win was Bondermans first since July 13 "Weve got to worry about winning," said Bonderman. "We need to win as many as we can. You dont need to worry about anybody else. If we play the way we can, and you play good baseball and we dont get in, then you can look back and be okay with it." Alex Gordon drove in the lone run while Leo Nunez (2-2) was saddled with the loss for giving up six runs on 12 hits in 6 1/3 innings of work for the Royals, who were looking to sweep the Tigers for the first time since taking four straight against them from September 19-21, 2005.
