Tigers Win Again In Toronto
The Tigers took 3 out of 4 in Toronto after losing the opening game of this series on Friday night. This one wasn't pretty, but a win is a win and the Tigers came out on top of Toronto tonight 10-5.
Starter Max Scherzer didn't have his best stuff, but pitched 5 innings giving up just two runs for his sixth victory against no losses. Luckily, the Tiger offense was alive and well tonight. Detroit took advantage of six walks and an error to score six runs in the 4th inning and 4 more in the 7th. Austin Jackson was 1 for 6 tonight, but his bases-loaded double drove in three runs in the 4th. Victor Martinez had three hits and drove in three runs, 2 came on a homer in the 7th inning.
Toronto scored three in the 9th after reliever Ryan Perry came in and walked the bases loaded. He then proceeded to give up a double and a single and left with two runners on before Jose Valverde came in to get the final out.
The win evens the Tiger record at 18-18, good for third place in the American League Central Division. The Tigers will now travel to Minnesota for a two game series with their division rival, the Twins. First pitch at 8:05 tomorrow night. Rick Porcello will get the start on the mound for Detroit.
The Tigers are on a three-game win streak, this would be a good time to extend it!
