The Tigers needed some of their role players to come up big for a change.   Today was the day.  Ryan Raburn has been getting booed at Comerica park lately, and deservedly so.  He strikes out a lot and has made some costly errors recently.  His batting average …

Detroit Tigers Come Back To Win Big On Sparky’s Day
Before today's game, the Detroit Tigers retired former manager Sparky Anderson's uniform number.  It was a moving ceremony, with most of the 84 Tigers (Detroit's last championship) in attendance.  The ball game was well-pitched until the late innings.  Starter Brad Penny gave up two runs in the 7th …
