If there was any hope for the Tigers left in the 2015 season Franklin Gutierrez ended it in the eighth inning last night. His pinch hit grand slam off of Neftali Feliz should make it clear to the Tigers brass that 2016 is what they need to start concentrating on. For all intents and purposes, 2015 is over.
Lost is this debacle was a mammoth home run by J.D. Martinez. J.D. continued his impressive season with an absolute CONNIPTION shot to straight away center field to give the Tigers signs of life in the third inning. If Miggy can’t come back it should be fun watching J.D. the rest of the way.
