Delmon Young returned to the lineup on Saturday, batting fifth and serving as the team's designated hitter in the 3-2 loss to the White Sox. He went 0-for-4.
The Tigers scored their 17th eighth-inning run of the season Friday night when Miguel Cabrera singled in Don Kelly to cut the deficit to one run.
Not counting extra innings, the Tigers have their most runs, most hits (30), most at-bats (100), and best batting average (.300) in the eighth inning.
Octavio Dotel's two-run home run allowed to Gordon Beckham on Friday night marked his first runs of the season.
The runs were his first given up since Sept. 26, 2011, when he was with the Cardinals. The home run was his first since Phillies outfielder Raul Ibanez hit a grand slam off the 38-year-old right-hander on Sept. 17, 2011.
