Tigers 13 White Sox 9
Kenny Rogers owes this kid something big. All the runs Kenny allowed, Ryan Raburn personally took it upon himself to score them back. Behold the power of Mud Hens. First it was Mike Hessman's big hits, then Virgil Vasquez pitched a great game yesterday, and now Raburn. Let's not forget Mike Rabelo, who would have been in Toledo had Vance Wilson been healthy. He is 9 for 15 in his past four games. Former (and future?) Mud Hen Jason Grilli got the "win" tonight, in spite of a typical Grilli outing. Tim Byrdak, who just came back up from Toledo, pitched two perfect innings to close out the game, and got credit for the save. Strangest thing of all about this game, every Tiger had a hit except the guy that leads the team in hitting, Magglio Ordonez. The Tigers go for the series victory tomorrow afternoon, and I'm hoping for a game that will let me listen peacefully at work with limited profanity, and breaking of office items.
Duh...one Mr. Ryan Neil Raburn
Kenny Rogers. 7 runs, and anytime Juan Uribe hits a home tun off of you, it's a bad night.
