San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyson Ross outpitched Max Scherzer and Wil Venable hit a two-run double, as San Diego topped Detroit, 5-1, in the rubber match of a three-game interleague set.
Ross (1-2) tossed seven sterling innings, allowing a run on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk. Scherzer (0-1) left the game after five full frames having surrendered four runs on as many hits and three walks despite fanning a season-high 10 batters.

Victor Martinez drove in the lone run for the Tigers, who have lost four of six.
