How Was The Game? (April 17, 2015)

Tigers 2, White Sox 1

For most of the day, the Tigers were putting runners on base and failing to cash them in, but a solo bomb from Yoenis Cespedes bailed out David Price (3 GS, 22.1 IP, 0.40 ERA, 2.45 FIP) and the home run he allowed to Avi Garcia. Aside from the homers, the pitchers dueled for eight innings, with Price racking up nine punchouts and six base runners as he got stronger as the game went on. Castellanos ripped one to right to start the 9th and when Garcia bobbled the ball he went for two. Castellanos was tagged at second, but the ump called him safe and Ventura failed to challenge, giving Avila a chance to bunt the pinch runner to third. Iglesias stepped in and slapped a single to right center to plate the winning run and pushed the Tigers to 9-1. Anibal Sanchez (2 GS, 13 IP, 3.46 ERA, 4.14 FIP) takes on Chris Sale on Saturday.

The Moment: Iglesias punches one through to collect the walk off win.
