The Detroit Tigers have had their hittin’ shoes on tonight, as Fox Sports Detroit announcer Rod Allen would say. They scored seven runs off Kansas City Royals starter Jason Vargas, and lead the Royals 10-2 in the sixth inning.
First, JaCoby Jones went oppo taco.

Incredibly, Tuesday’s game marks the first time the Tigers have held a lead since Justin Verlander was traded last Thursday. They will also snap a five-game losing streak if the current score holds.
