The music the Detroit Tigers were playing in the visiting clubhouse at the Coliseum was extra loud.
Tigers players were enjoying their latest victory. Octavio Dotel, with an ice wrap on his injured right elbow and a huge grin on his face, was dancing to "Hello," by Martin Solveig (featuring Dragonette). Torii Hunter was cracking himself up with his postgame quotes.

The Tigers were a happy group Sunday afternoon as they prepared to head to Seattle for an off-day. Their mood should be no surprise. They have been hitting. Even more importantly, they have been winning.

The Tigers both hit and won Saturday and Sunday after bouncing back from a tough 4-3 loss Friday to the Oakland Athletics in the series opener. The Tigers had 14 hits Sunday to just three for the A's and cruised to a 10-1 victory over the A's. They have now won each of their past three three-game series.

"If we just keep winning the series, that's pretty important," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "You win two out of three, that's good. We've won three straight series, two out of three, against three really good teams. That's a good sign for us."

Success starts at the top, and it is difficult to find a leadoff hitter having a better season than Austin Jackson.

"He's setting the table for the big guys to eat," Hunter said. "He's the one that's setting the tone for all of us. This is what we're capable of when he's getting on base."
