Game 27 Recap

Todd Jones made it a little closer than it had to be, but the Tigers held on and got a nice bounce-back win after their loss on Sunday. Kenny Rogers looked like he wouldn't make it out of the 3rd inning, throwing 75 pitches in the first three. However he recovered and made it through the next 3 innings allowing only 2 hits, to get the win and the quality start. Placido Polanco and Gary Sheffield showed signs that they are healing, with Polanco going 4 for 5 and Sheff hitting a HR. Curtis Granderson continues to play out of his damn mind, adding another HR, double, and 2 walks. Quad 20s look like it was just the beginning of the Granderson offensive output. The relief pitching hasn't been as good as it has the past couple of weeks, but it didn't lose them the game. That's all you can ask of those guys. I would right more but Wings-Avs is in progress so to the TV I go to see if all 3 Detroit teams in action tonight can win.
