I never thought I’d be typing this but more good news from Comerica Park. For the second straight night, the Tigers beat the Royals in extra innings, making it four wins in a row. This is the first four game winning streak since starting the season 6-0.
The good news keeps on coming.
Ian Kinsler had the walk off solo shot in the bottom of the 11th. After a rough start Kinsler is staying hot. He’s hitting .348 since the all-star break and leads baseball in multi-hit games.
Miggy had two more hits and drove in two more runs and all of the sudden Victor’s bat has heated up. Vmart was 2-2 with two walks and a two run-homer.
There is even good news out of the pen. No not Bruce Rondon, who struggled again tonight, but Neftali Feliz and Tom Gorzelanny got the job done in extra innings and held the Royals down until the offense could win it in the 11th.
If you missed the game, the Tigers thought they won in the bottom of the ninth, but for the first time in MLB history, in the re-play era, a walk-off win was reversed. Kinsler was originally called safe at home on a sac-fly by Andrew Romine but was called out after re-play.
I guess that’s why we continue to tune in, you never know what you’re going to see.

I call BS on MLB for allowing that replay to even occur.. My understanding of the rule is this: when a manager challenges, and loses such challenge, he loses the right to challenge for the remainder of the game.. He challenged Miggy getting HBP earlier in the inning and lost.. Case closed… But justice eventually prevailed.. And with this win the Tigers now own the best record within the central division.. Go figure
apparently after the seventh inning the umpires can be asked to review any play? I think?
