The D-Train Keeps Rollin’, Detroit Tigers Win 12th Straight

Detroit Tigers v Chicago White Sox

The first half of this season the Tigers were a team that was waiting to get it together. It took a while, but it’s happening in a big way for Detroit as the Tigers came from behind with a pair of pinch-hit homers in the 9th from Ryan Raburn and Alex Avila to tie the game at 5-5. Victor Martinez doubled in the Tiger half of the 10th and was replaced by pinch-runner Will Rymes, who promptly scored on Carlos Guillen’s base hit (his 3rd of the day).
Jose Valverde earned his 44th save of the season by striking out the side in the bottom of the 10th to preserve the 6-5 Tiger victory.
Brad Penny started the game and went 6 innings allowing 5 runs, 4 which were unearned. His teammates came back for him again. Phil Coke worked a scoreless 9th to get the win and the Tiger streak continues at 12 straight victories. It’s the longest win streak for Detroit since 1934.
The Tiger magic number is now 3 to clinch the American League Central Division title. Cleveland plays Texas tonight, and could reduce it to 2 with a loss to the Rangers.
The Tigers continue their road trip with 4 games in Oakland starting tomorrow night. Max Scherzer will face Brandon McCarthy in the 10:05 pm game on the west coast.
