Magglio Ordonez Homers Twice In Tigers Win Over Angels

The Tigers held off the Angels just long enough tonight to walk away with the win.  They were up 7-3 before Jose Mesa gave up a three run shot to make it a one run game.  Curtis Granderson hit a homerun to right field to give the Tigers a two run lead and they ended up needing that run because Todd Jones gave up a run in the ninth.

Chad Durbin picked up the win with five solid innings.  He gave up three runs on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts.  Two of the eight hits he gave up went over the fence.

Magglio Ordonez hit two solo homeruns and he now has 42 RBIs on the season.  Granderson drove in three and scored two runs while Placido Polanco finished with two hits and two RBIs.

Jeremy Bonderman makes his return from the disabled list tomorrow and he’ll square up against Ervin Santana in an afternoon game.  The Indians are down by five runs so the Tigers will most likely move back into first place by a half game.

They look good, but that bullpen needs a little improvment. Where has everybody gone? Nobody seems to be bitching anymore. Maybe they (like me) are getting spoiled by how great three of the Detroit teams are. We really are privilaged sports fans. Too bad about the Wings, but they look good for next year and The Pistons…who knows what can happen. I can’t wait until the Tigers get Rogers back.

Mesa needs to go, he is brutal and almost cost them the game. Sign Percival and use him to replace Mesa.
