Pretty darn strange.
Tigers 10, Twins 7
So I have a job, and so that means I tend to not have my full attention placed on games that occur during the day. Normally, it’s easy enough to catch up, especially as my division often has the game on in the conference room. But forgive my confusion when looking at how this played out. It appears that Shane Greene (5 GS, 31.1 IP, 4.60 ERA, 3.46 FIP) had a super weird day, striking out a bunch, walking none, and getting otherwise obliterated. The Tigers were up 1-0, down 3-1, tied 3-3, down 7-3, and then rallied all the way back. Cabrera hit two dingers, Martinez hit one, and James McCann hit his first career HR, which was of the inside the park variety. I’ll just let that sit out there. Greene was bad, the bullpen was good, and McCann had an inside the park homer. I don’t even know what to tell you, but the good guys won and took the series. Alfredo Simon (4 GS, 27.1 IP, 1.65 ERA, 3.07 FIP) goes Thursday in KC.
The Moment: James McCann inside the park home run.
