Tigers eye fifth straight win

Jun 14, 2008 - 12:17 PM LA Dodgers (31-36) at Detroit (30-37) 3:55 p.m. EDT

DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Detroit Tigers will look to post a fifth straight win for the first time this season when they host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.

After sweeping the American League Central-leading Chicago White Sox this week, the Tigers welcomed the Dodgers to town with a 5-0 victory in the opener of the three-game interleague series Friday.

Marcus Thames and Magglio Ordonez homered and rookie Armando Galarraga continued to impress, allowing three hits in seven innings to earn his sixth win. Detroit has outscored the opposition 18-6 during their four-game winning streak.

On Saturday, the Tigers' Eddie Bonine will take the mound in his major league debut. The 27-year-old righthander is 9-2 with a 4.48 ERA in 12 starts at Class AAA Toledo this season.

A former 23rd round draft pick by the San Diego Padres in 2003, Detroit picked Bonine up in the minor league phase of the 2005 Rule 5 draft.

The Dodgers will counter with struggling ace Brad Penny (5-8, 5.38 ERA). The burly righthander has lost each of his last four starts and has not posted a win since May 2.

Penny has not gotten much help from the Los Angeles offense of late, which has managed a total of five runs during his last four starts.
