Detroit facing Minnesota up 2 games with 6 to play. Magic number for Detroit is 4. Currently 2 to 2 in the 2nd with the Tigers threatening for more. Another big game tonight
Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
INGE = CLUTCH
and Santiago = dude that I never think is going to get a hit but surprises me usually at the best of times.
wooooooooooooo Ramon Santiago!!!!
BTW. WolvinLA misses you too.
The CiL at ESPN is just terrible. Awful.
Bases loaded, 1 Out and Cabrera is up....oh man!
Make it Ordonez with 2 outs. Holy shit!!
Popped it up!!! Damnit!
Magglio with the DOUBLE!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
This Leyland cat is a freaking genius. putting Santiago where he did, batting Mags behind Cabrera wow I am in AWE.
Magglio is earning his 18 mill. Nice one big guy.
and Pavano gets the hook. Yeeahh baby!
With that hit, Maggs is now hitting .300 on the year. Miguel Cabrera welcomes you to the club.
Polanco is next.
Good call on Pavano
Thanks gordie, it's been fun talking baseball with you these past few months.
We need to keep pitching well for two reasons:
1. Sometimes big leads cause the Tigers to relax.
2. It's Minnesota, so watch out.
We'll be good though.
What a huge win if they finish this off though. Pavano has owned us this season.
Dude! Knock on some wood or something. It's the sixth. It's the Twins. And it's the Twins.
It's the effing Twins.
Miner is making this interesting, as usual. I have all the confidence in the world in this team, but at the same time, there is no such thing as a safe lead when the Twinkies are involved.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never count out the Twins.
Watching the Tigers is always more enjoyable when they are getting hits with runners in scoring position. Two big hits by Maggs tonight and he's almost looking like '07 Maggs (minus the amazing mane)
It looks like the key is to load the bases rather than put runner on the corners.
It looks like the Big Gerald will be coming in next inning to make sure Minn stays honest on the bases.
Big Al looked pretty good throwing out Tolbert in the 2nd but hasn't done much at the plate anyways so best to get the best at throwing 'em out in the game.
Baseball may be the most humbling sport. I felt bad for Miner there, that pitch was close.
Nice. Lyon looked like the second coming of Jason Grilli in April, but he's been nasty all the rest of the year.
Alright, let's not pull a Rodney here, Rodney.
Difference in the game: clutch hitting!
YES YES YES
Tomorrow can clinch it!
Magic number is 2. Can clinch the division tomorrow with a win though I'm sure the Twins will make it tough.
no one has ever been 3 down with 4 to go and come back. Doesn't sound right to me, but I like the odds.
We've been hitting Baker well this year, so that should take som pressure off Nate.
HUGE win today. Man if Detroit can clinch it tomorrow and give some people a rest on the weekend that'll be nice. Need Verlander, Jackson, and Porcello rested up for the Yankees.
