That was the mantra of the Tigers yesterday. They had struggled against a poor team, and needed to bounce back. And they did, in a huge way. In all, they’d score 17 runs on 27 hits.
Stellar performance number 1 goes to Carlos Pena, who put up numbers you’d normally see on a console baseball game. 6 for 6, four runs, and five RBIs on two homeruns. That one game boosted his batting average from .204 all the way to .236.
Stellar performance number 2 goes to Omar Infante. Omar went four for four, with three double, two runs, and two RBIs. Not bad production from the eight and ninth spot.
Stellar performance number 3 goes to Alex Sanchez. Alex started the game four for four, then dropped off on his final two at bats. He finished four for six, with yet another multi-hit game.
Seven Tigers had multi-hit games. Five had three or more. Five had two or more RBIs. Six scored at least twice.
The honorable mention goes to Nate Robertson, who pitched five strong innings to pick up his fourth win. He left the game with a nice eight run cushion.
Tigers face Baltimore this weekend. Hopefully I’ll get my email fixed, and I’ll be able to square things away with the people who will be writing for the site to give everyone some more diverse readings. This email problem is more and more frustrating because it will start to work for a bit, and I think I’m out of the water, then it will start crashing again.
