Game 65 Recap

Three, oh yeah, it's a magic number!

Justin Verlander is Back!!!

Ok, so maybe it's just one game, but JV showed that he could maintain the good stuff that had been showing up in his last few starts. His 1st complete game of the year, and 3rd win clinches a series win over the White Sox.

Miguel Cabrera had a huge at bat in leading off the second. He fouled off 9 pitches on his way to a 14 pitch at bat that resulted in a walk. In that at bat Miguel Cabrera saw more pitches than Justin Verlander had thrown in the game. The walk lead to Marcus Thames first hit off of Javier Vasquez in 9 at-bats, which landed in the bullpen to drive in 3. The Tigers never looked back. Now they look to tomorrow to complete the sweep.
