When is the last time the Tigers jumped out to an early lead on a team? Well, they did just that this afternoon versus the Blue Jays, led by two RBIs from Gerald Laird. Mix that with some good starting pitching from Rick Porcello, and that could win a team some ballgames.
The only question - a big one, given what's happened in recent games - was whether or not Detroit's bullpen could make that lead hold up. Some big insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth, courtesy of Aubrey Huff and Brandon Inge, were certainly helpful.
The long Tiger Town nightmare is over! The losing streak is over at five games. Find somebody to hug. Enjoy a meal in good company.
More later this evening. Thanks for spending part of your Sunday afternoon here!
