Not often do I write about my Detroit Tigers‘ ongoing special season, one that has far more than revived the franchise from a decade-plus of the doldrums. But last night’s 10-4 victory over Tampa Bay hit so many milestones that it’s impossible to ignore:
Shortstop Carlos Guillen became the 10th Tiger in franchise history to hit for the cycle
Rookie phenom Justin Verlander became the first Major League pitcher to reach 14 wins in 2006
In his first game in a Tigers uniform, new first baseman Sean Casey belted a home run and drove in two runs
Temporary call-up outfielder Brent Clevlen hit his first two career home runs, pushing his two-game batting average to .625
With 56 games remaining in the season, Detroit tied last season’s win total of 71 – at 71-35, they stand 7.5 games ahead of the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central
Go get ‘em, Tigers!
