I think he was using little a bit of stealth there.Jarrod Saltalamacchia walked to load the bases a second time before Romine drove in the games first run when he was hit by a pitch.Saltalamacchia made it 2-0 in the fourth with a two-out RBI single. Carrera cut it to 2-1 with an RBI triple in the fifth.Sanchez had pitched eight innings in each of his previous two starts, both victories, but wasnt as sharp against the Tigers. He allowed two runs and five hits in five innings.Following the game, Sanchez was named to the AL All-Star team, replacing injured Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel.Thats a huge accomplishment, Sanchez said.
