This would be a huge win and the Tigers are up 4-0. The Tigers scored two quick runs on Craig Monroe’s two run shot that also scored Curtis Granderson. The Tigers continued to pummell Mark Buehrle and singled twice on him but the first inning came to an abrupt halt when Carlos Guillen lined into a triple play.
Now, Magglio Ordonez hasn’t just homered once, he’s homered twice to make it a four run game. Neifi Perez is back over the Mendoza line with two singles.
Hopefully Rogers and the pen will be able to hold onto this lead. Winning this first game would be huge.
The Tigers turned on the offense in the ninth inning and busted this game open. The big hit was a three run shot by Brandon Inge. Kenny Rogers threw six shutout innings and while Fernando Rodney and Jamie Walker each gave up runs on solo homeruns, the game was already firmly in hand.
