As predicted, after Bud Norris drilled Torii Hunter in the ribs following an Ian Kinsler home run in Monday's game, there was a pitch thrown by a Tigers pitcher that "slipped." The accidental slippage took place during Wednesday's game, with Justin Verlander on the mound and Nelson Cruz at the plate.
With the Tigers leading 5-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning, on a 1-0 pitch to Nelson Cruz, Verlander threw a pitch that went behind Cruz. Dan Dickerson and Jim Price take it from there, and Jim suggests that perhaps the Tigers were hoping Verlander would have been just a bit more "accurate" in his location.
