New, 13 comments

Torii Hunter nearly ran into two outs on the basepaths tonight, but a pair of excellent slides turned a sure out into the Tigers' seventh run of the evening.

Torii Hunter probably isn't as fast as he used to be. That might lead to him running into an out or two more than usual this season. Tonight, he proved that speed isn't everything when he slid around a pair of tags to score a run.

First, he slid around a tag from Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland after trying to advance on a sacrifice fly from Miguel Cabrera.

Later in the inning, Hunter slid under a tag from catcher A.J. Pierzynski at home plate.
