At the very least, there will be bonus baseball Tuesday evening at the Metrodome.
The Detroit Tigers won the game they had to win, with Justin Verlander pitching the game his team desperately needed. For seven innings, he allowed only two hits and no runs.
And somebody in the Detroit dugout brought his bat to the ballpark today. Namely, Ryan Raburn, who blasted two home runs as part of a 3-for-4 day. Magglio Ordonez was perfect at the plate, batting 4-for-4, highlighted by a solo homer.
Tigers beat the White Sox, 5-3! Full recap to come. But for now, enjoy the afterglow.
(And check in on that Twins-Royals game, though Minnesota currently leads 7-1.)
