      Tigers Tuiasosopo drives in 5 and Sanchez strikes out career high 17 in 10-0 win

      DETROIT (AP) - Anibal Sanchez struck out 17 in eight marvelous innings for Detroit, confounding the Atlanta Braves in a dazzling performance Friday night and leading the Tigers to a 10-0 victory.

      Sanchez set a team record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game, and he had a mathematical chance of tying the major league mark of 20 when he was pulled after eight innings and 121 pitches. Sanchez (3-1) took off his hat as he was leaving the field following the top of the eighth, acknowledging a huge ovation at Comerica Park after he struck out Dan Uggla, his final hitter.

      Paul Maholm (3-2) allowed eight runs in 3 2-3 innings after giving up only three in his first four starts.

      Detroit's Matt Tuiasosopo homered and drove in a career-high five runs.
