Tigers 8 Mariners 7

Nice win and a needed win.  After losing the last three to Kansas City the Tigers could ill afford to lose their first game in the home-stand.

Justin Upton came through with two home runs including the walk-off in the bottom of the 12th.  If they Tigers are going to keep their heads above water they are going to need J-UP to stay hot.

Iggy scared me at short.  He made an error and almost booted another ball in the 11th.

Did anybody else notice that Upton almost missed the plate on his walk-off?

JMC and J-UP both had CONNIPTION SHOTS!

I have to tip my hat to the bullpen.  I don’t like the Tigers’ chances  battle of the pens but they pitched well tonight.

Pelfrey was bad.

Royals 2 Tigers 1

Well, losing the last three games in a row is never good, but the Tigers finished this road trip 4-6.  Not great, but not terrible considering the abominations that were the previous two road trips.

Zimmerman pitched well but the Tigers couldn’t hit.  Even after they got the devastating Chris Young out of the game, who historically dominates the Tigers, the bats couldn’t do anything.  Unfortunately given the state of the bullpen, I don’t like their chances in extra inning games.

Hopefully, they can have a good home-stand.  It won’t be easy with Seattle and Cleveland coming into town.

The J.D. injury may be devastating.

Rise Up | Hockey Night In Canada 2016 Tribute

Hockey season is over.  The Penguins won the cup and for as much as I wanted the Sharks to win, Pittsburgh was by far the better team.

Growing up near the Canadian border, I prefer to watch CBC, Channel 9’s, Hockey Night In Canada for game coverage whenever possible.  HNIC does hockey right.

Here is the 2016 season ending montage HNIC played at the end of Sunday’s broadcast, H/T The Hockey News:
