Game 2011.104: Tigers at White Sox
Loved that win yesterday. JV fought through 2 bombs to keep the Tigers in it, and Betemit came through with a clutch 2 out RBI to win the ball game. The way JV was gearing up in the 8th, I think he could have gone 9, but giving the ball to Valverde was the right move. Bravo Jimmy. More JL props for leaving JV in there in the 8th after the 1 out walk with Konerko coming up.
I’d also like to point out that Jackson took the first pitch in all 5 ABs last night, and only swung and missed twice. That K in the 9th sure looked like a walk to me.
Tigers look to payback the White Sox by taking the rubber game, and the series in Chicago. I’m setting this to auto-post, so if there’s no lineup posted here, someone please fill it in for us.
