It’s amazing how much better a win makes everything seem. Especially when a pathetic offense scores eight runs in come from behind fashion.
Kudos have to go out to Alex “A Squared Money” Avila. He ignited a stagnant offense with a monster shot to right field. After that, the rest of the offense came alive.
Kudos again to Nick Castellanos for another big shot to give the Tigers the lead for good.
What makes this win nicer is that the Tigers only got a decent start from rookie Buck Farmer but the bullpen for once got the job done.
Blaine Hardy was solid for two innings and Joba was good as well in the eighth. Joe Nathan was Joe Nathan, not good but adequate, I guess.
One interesting move by the Pirates was the intentional walk to Cabrera. Although, Miggy took a walk and drove in a run with a deep fly ball, he has been struggling with little power but I guess he’s still Miguel Cabrera. That being said, I’m not sure I would have given him the free pass.
