On Memorial Day, the BoSox slammed out 13 hits in a 7-4 victory. The key action in that one occurred when Mike Aviles seemingly had struck out for the final out in the 2nd inning, but was given new life when the ump called it a dropped foul tip. He promptly hit a single to score a run leading to three more tallies. Subsequently, Tiger manager Jim Leland and 3rd base coach Gene LaMont were given the rest of the night off for vigorously disputing the call.
