This was probably everyone’s intial reaction if the turned on the Tiger game at some point in the mid to late innings, as the Tigers turned the tables on Jose Lima, and destroyed the Royals, 15-6. The Tigers set season highs in runs and hits, the Tigers scored in each of their first seven innings, and all nine of the starters had at least one rbi. So the Tigers get win 39, and they do it in a big way.
Omar Infante got the nod at third base, only his second major league game there. In the seventh inning, he made a nice play down the line to get the out. You like to see guys open to new things like this. When they suggested Deivi Cruz move to third a few years back, he copped an attitude.
And at least the AL playoff races are winding down. The Twins clinched the Central, and the Red Sox have a 3.5 game lead for the wild card. The NL is a little less clear, with the Marlins holding a 2 game lead over Philly, and the Cubs now holding a one game lead over Houston.
