The Tigers bats, Miggy’s especially, came to life and put up eight runs. Thanks to Phil Coke, they needed seven of them to get past the White Sox 8-6.
JV was pretty good. He pitched seven complete. He allowed two earned runs on eight hits. He struck out seven and walked two.
- The Tigers offense came to life.
- Miggy was 3-5 with three RBIs.
- Alex Avila was 3-4 and didn’t strike out.
- The Tigers didn’t make an error.
- JV needed 119 pitches to get through seven innings and his eight hits allowed are a little high.
- The bullpen gave up four runs.
- The White Sox took Phil Coke behind the woodshed and beat him into a conniption. He lasted 2/3 of an inning and gave up three earned runs, two on a two run shot by Adam Dunn. This is really ugly considering Dunn in a lefty.
In the end, a win is a win, and I’m glad to have this one. I hope Miggy is back to being Miggy.

Can’t imagine what the money line was in Vegas – JV against a minor league call up. This is one they had to have, and all things considered a win is a win. As for Miggy, I’ll chalk this one up to hitting off a minor league pitcher he should beat like a drum. And it appears all the hitters did the same, so it may be premature to consider this the start of a return to normalcy. Tomorrow is another day. I’m not worried about Coke, he’ll be gone the minute a better option becomes available. He hasn’t consistently been able to get lefties out for the past 2+ seasons, so he is definitely on the clock.
Good point about the minor league pitcher but the Tigers are great at making average pitcher look like Cy Young. Also, I really believe that Miggy will end up being Miggy, hopefully soon.
