Game 106 Overflow: Angels at Tigers

Is the old Ricky P really back? I'd love to say "I told you so..."

Actual news: according to Ken Rosenthal, the Tigers are willing to include Jacob Turner in a trade for Ubaldo Jimenez, but won't part with anyone on the big club (read: Rick Porcello)

What happened so far:

  • Maicer Izturis took Rick Porcello’s second pitch of the game deep for a solo home run.
  • Brennan Boesch tied the game with a monster home run in the bottom of the 1st.
  • "That’s a nice launch right there." – Rod Allen, after Howie Kendrick nearly killed a cute kid in the stands after he couldn’t hold onto his bat in the 5th. Clearly, he cannot be trusted.
  • Porcello calmed down after the home run, but gave up another run on a couple Angel hits in the top of the 5th.
  • Razor Ramon Santiago used his "sneaky power" (another Rod-ism) to drive in Alex Avila with an RBI double off the right field wall in the bottom of the 5th.
  • The Tigers blew up for 4 runs in the bottom of the 6th, chasing starter Tyler Chatwood.
