Watch the Tigers crush three home runs in a row

A.J. Griffin was ducking and covering the whole inning.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Detroit Tigers Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t know if Alex Avila batting second will ever become the OBP driven thing we’ve discussed here at BYB, but it sure worked out Saturday night. Texas Rangers starter A.J. Griffin didn’t know what hit him. Avila to right field? Sure, Avila is so hot right now. Miguel Cabrera and J.D. Martinez following with oppo blasts over the big wall in right center? That is run support the likes of which Justin Verlander is almost wholly unfamiliar.

Messed with Texas.
