Tigers win with walk-off
Rangers fall in ninth
Ron Mahay gave up a walk-off homer to Carlos Guillen to lead off the ninth inning as the Rangers fell to the Tigers on a rainy night in Detroit. The Rangers had no problem getting hits off Tigers starter Kenny Rogers, getting 10 in seven innings, but only two of those hits produced runs.
