Tigers Rally for Eight Runs to Top Twins

Down 4-2, Detroit reached into their heart and pulled out six more runs to defeat Minnesota 8-6.

Justin Verlander settled down after allowing those initial four runs to earn his 11th win on the season. What a relief to have our ace healthy.

Miguel Cabrera, bad ankle and all, drove in our 3rd run. Eugenio Suarez gave us the lead with a single, scoring runners on second and third. With snarfs at the same bases, Nick Castellanos knocked them home on a single, a theme for Detroit. The Tigers recorded 15 of their 17 for base hits.

Leading 7-4, the Twins got one back on a ball over J.D.’s head in left. Luckily, “Big Cat” Cabrera squirted another one up the middle, just past the pitcher and the middle infield to answer. That insurance run helped lessen the disaster that is Joe Nathan. Captain implosion left our hearts racing again as the final out sounded.

VICTORY!

  • Change the Batting Order You could claim the Tigers’ resurgence of late is due to Brad’s infamous ejection on Monday, but maybe it has had more to do with the return of originally drafted by Detroit Cameron Maybin? In just four games back in uniform, he is leading our team with as many stolen bases. And he’s worked the [...]
  • Welcome to the Jungle How else can you describe an 8-0 Tigers advantage vacated by the seventh inning – only to be took back again on more superhero baseball. The 1st inning was magical – our first game back at Comerica with Kirby’s ashes in right-center field. Ian Kinsler led off by smashing the first pitch from Minnesota over [...]
  • Just Because We Won… Changes nothing, Detroit. I’ve written articles in the past on “Superhero” baseball where our Gs bail out Brad with late-inning comebacks and home run heroics. Yesterday afternoon was no different. We led 1-0, then gave up three first inning runs. (Joba Jr. is coming along but I thought Daniel Norris was our guy?) Ian Kinlser [...]
  • An End to ENDURISM Every game is the same. We leave runners on base and it comes back to haunt us… and despite usually having an early lead we keep blowing it. Can you fathom the psychological torture we’re enduring? And this is what leads me to the Teal Swan’s ENDURING video, for Detroit is neglecting it’s teams just [...]
  • God Save Us I can’t say I’ve ever seen a team with this much talent be so poorly coached/managed. The Lions sure did squander some games, too, but Brad Ausmus makes Jim Caldwell look like Vince Lombardi (I almost said Joe… whoops). How can we keep showing up and dressing in our gear and being eternally hopeful? This [...]
