In a game that went back and forth several times, the Tigers finally showed that they might still be a team to reckon with. 

Miguel Cabrera  delivered a clutch base hit with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th to drive home the Tigers 5th run in the 5-4 victory over the Rangers.  The Tigers are now 4-7 on the young 2011 season, while the Rangers are 9-2.  Same two teams play tomorrow afternoon at 1 at Comerica park.  After that, the Tigers begin a 7 game road trip with stops in Oakland and Seattle.  The win snaps a 3-game home losing streak for the Tigers.

A few more like this could turn the tide for the Tigers, who have started out the year finding ways to lose games they should win.  On paper, this is a team that should be able to compete with anybody.  Perhaps today was the start of something good.
