Tigers Sweep Jays With 29 Runs This Weekend

Don’t look now, but the Tigers have won seven of eight and they’re now only two games below .500. They’re playoff chances are pretty much zero (Baseball Prospectus still puts us with less then a 1% chance of making up that 7.5 game deficit), but they’re playing as good as they have all season.

Today, they put on a show for the fans. By the end of the first, they were up 7-0. By the end of six, they were up 15-0. The Jays made a late rally with five in the seventh, but this game was over with early. What’s interesting is, we only outhit the Jays 15-11, yet we outscored them 17-6.

Five different Tigers had two or more runs, five had two or more RBIs, and five Tigers had multihit games. Curtis Granderson hit his third homer of the season and Carlos Pena and Craig Monroe also went yard.

This week, we get to play spoiler. The Athletics come to town and then we go to Boston for the weekend series. I’m getting sick of helping out the Yankees but I obviously want to win as many of these games as we can.

The Tigers rock. What a great win last night. I must say, at this stage of the season (with Oakland, then the Red Sox and then Cleveland), the Tigers are my second favorite team.
