4th-Jackson hit a 2 homer, welcome back Jackson

Fister is dealing

Twins SP Walters is donating 1k to prostate cancer for every strike out he gets (4 through 5)

For general reference, here are the some of the Tigers team stats and their ranking in the MLB (in parentheses) as of this morning per StatSheet:

Team Hitting
BA H R HR RBI
.278 (1) 655 (3) 331 (5) 68 (16) 322 (4)
Team Pitching
ERA R WHIP BB SO
3.52 (6) 248 (26) 1.18 (2) 175 (26) 634 (1)
Team Fielding
PO A E PB FP
1,788 (23) 556 (26) 28 (27) 6 (7) 98.8% (4)

Through seven, it's still a very good stat line for FIster - 5 Ks, 1 BB and a one-hitter even if the one hit was a home run. As a team, the Tigers are 9-27 at the plate today as we go into the 8th inning.

Say you want to inform someone about a possible no-hitter and give them the opportunity to watch if you know they otherwise might miss it.  I usually wait until the 7th and then text something like "Hey, you might want to check out the Tigers game right now."

Sparing us the aggravation of Valverde.

Instead, Benoit in to close this one out. 

1-2-3 9th...final score, Detroit 5, Minnesota 2.

No "Win! Twins!" today.
