Maroth’s Gem Goes to Waste

In the bottom of the 9th inning the Tigers were tied with the Twins at 2-2. Torii Hunter came up to bat and hit a walkoff homerun off Jamie Walker(0-2) handing the 3-2 loss to the Tigers.

Even though the Tigers lost, Mike Maroth pitched great. He went 7 innings giving up only 2 runs, and striking out 5. Maroth is now winless in his last four starts,but 3 of those starts have been no-decisions.

Carlos Guillen hit his 7th home run of the season to give Detroit a 2-1 lead, but it highlighted a critical out on the previous at-bat. Alex Sanchez reached base on a bunt but was caught stealing just before Guillen went deep. If he hadn’t tried to steal, the Tigers would have probably taken the 3-1 lead rather than the 2-1 lead.

The Tigers are 2-6 when tied after 8 innings this season.

Pena knocked in the first Tigers’ run in the 4th innning when he hit a RBI single.

This was just the 4th win for the Twins in their last 12 games.
