O's put up 2 on Sanchez in the first.
With a 2-out single in the first, Miguel Cabrera is now 3 hits away from 2000 on his career.
EDIT: With two outs in the ninth, Cabrera homers for hit number 2000!!!
Just a couple days after trading for Angels SS/Utility man Andrew Romine to compete in a SS platoon, the Tigers have acquired veteran SS Alex Gonzalez. Tigers traded away Steve Lombardozzi, who was acquired in the Fister trade.
Looks like the SS position in now in the hands of the 37-year old, 15 year veteran, and Romine will handle utility duties at 2B, SS and 3B. Bad news for Danny Worth fans.
Thought I would open a thread as the Tigers finish the season with a three-game series in Miami tonight.
- The Tigers are within one game of the A's for home-field advantage in the ALDS
- Martinez will probably be catching
- Will Cabrera start?
It appears the Tigs are involved in a 3 way trade, Avi Garcia goes to Chitown, Peavy goes to Boston, and Jose Iglasias comes to Detroit, per Danny Knobler on Twitter (among others). Iglacias can play SS, 2B, 3B and is hitting 330 in 200+ at bats in the Bigs. Locked in for a while, until 2019.
EDIT: appears Brayan Villarreal is also included, going to Boston
Side note - AP reports Biogenesis suspensions will be announced on Friday, Peralta to accept it.
my bad, not supposed to be a diary
So they missed the tag on Hunter going back to first on the sacrifice fly by Cabrera in the 2nd, but I thought the first baseman was on the bag, so Hunter should have been doubled off as he left first before the outfielder caught the ball. Am I missing something?
In case you missed it, quite a rare and funny play happened in the Tigers-Indians game tonight. Nick Swisher got caught not running out a grounder down the line and payed the price in a closely contested game.
