Tigers 6 Twins 4

It looks like the Tigers are going to be the spoiler – whether they deserve it or not.  They pulled last night’s game off,  somehow, finding a way to win, when they didn’t deserve it. They overcame three infield errors and a sacrifice fly to second base to beat the Twins 6-4.

With one more win the Tigers can avoid a 90 loss season.

Rajai Davis came through with a big two out, two strike, two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth and Neftali Feliz closed it out.

Davis’s homer came after Nick Castellanos lead off the eighth with a double but both James McCann and Dixon Machado took third strikes, failing not only to score Castellanos, but even to advance him to third.  These are the situations that I start doubting the competence of Brad Ausmus. It is the bottom of the eighth in a tie game.  Your #6 hitter just lead off with a double.  Why aren’t you having McCann bunt him over to third?  You only need one run and it is late in the game.

  1. Well the good news is you won’t have to worry about the competency of BA much longer……. however your GM has a 5 year contract with lots of work to do……. if you need something to ponder during the winter.
