OK, we swear -- swear -- this will be the last Brandon Inge post ... don't quote us on that.

Former Tiger Brandon Inge hit his second home run in as many games, giving him nine RBI in 23 at bats since joining the Oakland A's on April 30. This blast was a walk off grand slam off another former Tiger, Francisco Cordero, to give Oakland a come from behind, 7-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Oakland Coliseum on Tuesday night. It was the seventh walk off home run of Inge's career.

The Jays had taken a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning on an RBI single by Kelly Johnson off struggling A's closer Grant Balfour, who picked up the victory. Johnson had earlier hit a two run homer in the third inning to put the Jays on top.

Despite the heroics, Inge is hitting just .174 with an on-base percentage of .286 since joining the A's. The victory was Oakland's fifth win in their last six games, giving them a 16-14 record for the season and leaving them in second place, four games behind Texas in the American League West.

The Tigers will see Inge for the first time since his release from Detroit, when they visit Oakland for a four-game, weekend series beginning Thursday.
