Quick notes

• Major League Baseball reversed a scoring decision from last Friday and awarded Alex Avila with a triple on his line drive that Orioles All-Star center fielder Adam Jones overran. That gave Avila two triples on the year and six since the start of last season.

• Count manager Jim Leyland among those impressed with young Blue Jays shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, who started Wednesday and Thursday with Yunel Escobar on paternity leave. The Tigers were interested in Hechevarria after he defected from Cuba, Leyland said, until Toronto signed him in April 2010.

• Anibal Sanchez's six strikeouts on Wednesday night pushed the Tigers over 1,000 for the season, marking the 14th year they've reached the mark in franchise history. Detroit entered Thursday ranked second in the American League with 1,007 strikeouts -- 19 behind Tampa Bay.
