Aubrey Huff belted a three run home run in the bottom of the ninth to send the Tigers into extra frames against the Jays and then Brandon Inge scored on a Marco Scutaro error to give the Tigers an impressive come from behind win. Scutaro also made an error in the ninth that put Curtis Granderon on to lead off the ninth so he’s definitely the goat in this one.
Justin Verlander had one bad inning. He gave up five runs in sixth including a pair of home runs. In all, he gave up ten hits for just the second time all season. He did strikeout nine and that brings his season total up to 239 on the season. Fu-Te Ni and Jeremy Bonderman both threw shutout frames and Bobby Seay got the last Jay out in the tenth and he improved to 6-3.
Ryan Raburn had a nice game and he went two for three with a solo home run and an RBI single. Huff had the three run blast and he did it as a pinch hitter. Magglio Ordonez went two for four with a walk and he’s now pushed his season batting average up to .296.
The Twins won but the Tigers still shaved that magic number down to 14. Jarrod Washburn gets the nod as the Royals come to town. Robinson Tejada throws for the Royals.
