Game 70 Recap

Tigers 15 Nationals 1

Chad Durbin made his case for his continued inclusion in the rotation with a five hit, five strikeout performance; and only allowing one run over 6 innings pitched. Strange things were afoot at the Circle (RF)K all night starting with Wil Ledezma loading the bases, but not surrendering a run. This an inning after he struck out the side. Sean Casey finally got his first home run of the year and drove in 4 to lead the Tigers in RBIs for the night. Magglio Ordonez hit his 34th double of the year, putting him halfway there to breaking the record of 67 in a season, with 92 games left to go. By the way he's hitting .377!!!! yet still trails Ichiro by about 78,000 votes for the final outfield spot. So while your stuffing the ballot box for Polanco, make sure to add your vote for Maggs.

Tiger Hero:
Sean Casey. Not only did he hit his first HR of the year and drive in four, he passed Jason Giambi for (a distant) third in All Star voting

Tiger Zero:
1st Base umpire Mike Everitt. Yeah the Tiger were up 13-1 at the time, but come on Neifi Perez needs all the help he can get.

Tigers Record:
W - L
41 - 29
Tied 1st Place AL Central
