Huge Win For Tigers Thursday
Not only did it stop the bleeding from lethargic losses the previous two nights, but it allowed the Tigers to move to within a half-game of the American League Central lead and the Twins. It held off the White Sox, who have won nine straight games and are only two behind the Tigers. It took some pressure off Andrew Oliver in his major league debut tonight in Atlanta.
It was also the way the Tigers won, by holding the off the Mets in the late innings. Great effort by the bullpen when it wasn't necessarily going well.
Also, some role players are starting to come through for the Tigers. Ryan Raburn sure did Thursday. Oh, and Brandon Inge is playing well.
