Detroit’s closer-by-committee approached worked for one night as Al Albuquerque, Joaquin Benoit and Phil Coke combined to get the final eight outs while giving up just one total hit.

“That’s what we’re going to have to do, and today it worked out pretty good,” manager Jim Leyland told the Tigers’ official website.
