It was a special night in Motown.
Red Wings 2-0 F (3-1 series lead)
Jimmy Howard shuts out Chicago in Detroit.
*Snarf save of the game: Save off his right leg while going to his left!
Franzen clipped in the back on near-score by Red Wings, no call.
-Second time they’ve disrespected “The Mule”
*Big Play: On a breakaway by the Blackhawks in 3rd, a 2 on 1 in front of the goal, the pass is intercepted by a Red Wing.
Game 5: Saturday, May 25, 8:00 PM ET NBC (Chicago, IL)
Tigers 7, Twins 6
It was like a cloud of Detroit karma carried over from Joe Louis Arena to Comerica Park.
-Two K’s to end the game, including J-Will, who had homered earlier
-1-2-3 in the 8th
*Another Home Run for Miguel Cabrera
After the Wings won, Detroit was able to turn it’s full attention to the Tigers. Trailing 5-2, the bats came alive. With a run we got it down to 5-3. Minny would snarf another score, however, to raise it back up to 6-3. After the 7th inning stretch, Detroit managed three runs to tie it, 6-6. In the bottom of the 8th, Prince Fielder could not be stopped, driving in the winning run, 7-6.
Our closer has a 0.82 ERA and 0.55 WHIP on the year, for all you hater-ass nerds (I see you).
Anibal Sanchez has the mound tomorrow.
