Notes: Even though the Diamondbacks out-hit the Tigers 12-to-10 on Sunday, Detroit still won decisively.  Once again, a leadoff hitter wore the sombrero, which has become a disturbing trend this season.  Jackson’s sombrero was highlighted by a pair of strikeouts in the eighth inning, an inning in which the Tigers scored seven runs and sent 12 batters to the plate.
