One way to ensure the Detroit Tigers don’t have to face Andrew Miller is to score so many runs that there’s no way Terry Francona brings him in. Well that’s what Tigers seem to be doing. After a run is singled in by Jose Iglesias in the second inning, Miggy hits a three run dinger in the fifth, and now Alex wants to get in on the fun blasting a two run shot out to deep left field. This was the final straw in a rough start by Trevor Bauer, as he’s yanked immediately following this home run. This stretches the Tigers lead up to six to nothing in the six inning.

Statcast shows how crushed that ball really was.
