Game 24

This one could hurt. The Twins offense looks like its coming around, and get a struggling Mike Maroth. The tigers needing a win to stop a mini-slide get Johan Santana. Some good news, Pudge is back in line-up after being off the past two days with a sore foot.

Tigers 4 Twins 3

That's why they play the game. That's the frustrating thing about the Tigers this years, is that you don't know what team you're going to get on any given night. Yesterday we get the team that got shelled and couldn't do anything right. Today we get the team that gets the step-up performance out of nowhere (Inge) and knocks off the best pitcher in baseball. That's why I love baseball. On the verge of a disastrous series sweep, the Tigers pull together an get a hard fought win. Now the test is to follow it up with more wins against Baltimore starting tomorrow.

Tiger Hero:
Brandon Inge. 3 for 3 with the walk-off HR. Let's hope that day's like these are not anomalies.

Tiger Zero:
Pudge. Maybe the foot was still bothering him, as he was 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts.

Tigers Record:
W - L
13 - 11
