Tigers 7, White Sox 1
It finally happened. The Tigers won a baseball game. The last Tigers win was so long ago, a horse literally won a Triple Crown in between. Jokes aside, things went right on Saturday night in Chicago. David Price (12 GS, 83.1 IP, 2.92 ERA, 3.08 FIP) was on his game, striking out seven in a row at one point and finishing with 11 strikeouts and 2 walks over 9 innings. The bats also did the job with hits for everyone, a bomb from Cabrera, and a huge day from the bottom three men in the order. After such a long slog of losing, the Tigers got good pitching, good hitting, and an Iglesias defensive play. It was everything you hoped for when the season started. They’ll try to (gulp) win a series, with Alfredo Simon (10 GS, 63.2 IP, 2.97 ERA, 3.59 FIP) going Sunday.
The Moment: David Price finishes his business.
