It didn’t take Miguel Cabrera long to reintroduce himself to Detroit Tigers‘ Lined up. The future Hall of Famer played a pivotal role in Detroit’s 11-0 victory over Baltimore Orioles Monday night, as did Riley Greene and starting bowler Tyler Alexander.
Miggy got the scoring early by driving in Javier Báez during the first half with one field to the left of center. Cabrera hasn’t played since September 2 due to a biceps injury that landed him on the injured list, but he looked healthier and finished the night 2 for 4, including two good-hit balls that could have come out a little. More barrel on them.
Tigers opened things up more in the fourth. Cabrera led the break with his second hit into the night and the bases loaded quickly thanks to Spencer Torkelson’s single and Jonathan Schoop’s walk. Baltimore rookie Tyler Wells walked over to Ryan Criddler to bring the run up and end his night early. Came in, D.L. Hall, who hit Tucker Barnhart looking, but also gave up the free run on a runaway Torkelson record.
Detroit finally got a few runs in the inning on a left singlet from Akil Badu who scored, then Riley Green found the gap in the right center to double the RBI. The Tigers came out fourth by 6 runs, but they didn’t finish there. Greene again came in fifth with another double scoring two more goals, taking him to three RBIs on the day and 35 through 79 major league games.
Kreidler added another locking run of sixth with an RBI single that Torkelson recorded to make it 9-0. Tigers fans would normally welcome adding an 8-stroke lead during a frustrating season like this one, but Tyler Alexander has been holding a no hitter through six rounds and getting cold on the bench.
Ryan Mountcastle and Anthony Santander put an end to their bidding with back-to-back singles to start Game Seven, but Alexander hit Jesus Aguilar and made Gunnar Henderson drop in a double to knock out the round without giving up a run. . It’s the second time he’s played during Season 7 this year (the fourth in his career) and the kind of start Alexander needs after a string of tough matches.
Of course, Alexander would not have made it as he did without some help. Baez stumbled to lead a streak with a jump play in the first, and Greene made another nice grab as he hit the pitch wall to finish the second and Criddler fired a rocket to keep things going in the sixth.
Will Fist came in to replace Alexander in eighth place and continued where he left off. The Orioles sat 1-2-3 and sent things to the ninth, which ended up being another decent role in Detroit’s offensive.
Kerry Carpenter started things off with a pinch hit single in place of Cabrera, and Torkelson followed that up with a double base floor pitch to put the guys in corners. Scoop brought Carpenter on a flyby and Criddler did the same to introduce Torkelson. 11-0, Detroit.
Jose Cisnero finished things off at nine, but ran into a bit of trouble. After taking out Teren Vavra with a three wrong header, Cisnero walked over to Adley Rutschman and Mountcastle to make things interesting. He made Kyle Storrs swing with a nasty passer and finally Aguilar retired after a seven-pitch battle.
This was one of those rare games where everything goes right for the tigers. Winning double digits is a rarity these days for Detroit, but the key players involved in this offer little hope for the future. Spencer Turkelson was a triple hitter, and Riley Greene and Ryan Criddler each led three runs. Even Akil Badu was driving in a pair at 2 out of 5 and got hit in nine holes.
In case you missed it, the Tigers hired a new Chief of Baseball Operations, formerly San Francisco Giants General Manager Scott Harris. The news came out hours before the game started and we’re still tackling things, but early results look positive. Harris is a rising star who recently oversaw rebuilding in San Francisco and has experience building a World Championship-Caliber list of his time with Chicago Cubs.
