Tigers Win 3 in a Row!

Now this is the offense we have all been waiting for! These guys are just destroying pitchers the last 3 games. It all started on Monday when the Tigers had a mega-comeback to win just their 3rd game of the year, but it was a BIG one.

The Tigers trailed almost the entire game. Getting behind 5-0 early and looking like the same team that has sucked all the way so far. Then they got 4 runs back in the 6th to make it 5-4. Of course our hopes were dashed as they got behind again 8-4. Pudge got a clown shoes HR in the 7th and then they were down again 9-5 going into the bottom of the 8th. Then it all started to go right. The breakout had begun. After we saw Miggy get on base on a routine ground ball because of an error you could feel the team ready to roll. They went on to add 6 runs in the bottom of the 8th to take an 11-9 lead that they never relinquished.

Then they fell behind again the next day, but came back once again to score a bunch more runs. Then tonight they pulled out a laugher. Putting up 13 runs in a 13-2 victory. Baker pitched alright for a while, but gave up 3 solo shots that fans with car insurance were glad they had in the parking lot. After he came out the Tigers destroyed the bullpen. Miggy had 5 RBIs and Renteria added 5 more to finish off the laugher. Let's hope this continues. Only being 5-10 they need to win a lot more games!
