After a Jud-inspired JD Martinez performance, the Tigers now have a chance to close out a West Coast trip with a winning record, which doesn’t happen every day. The only thing better than watching JD go long twice was seeing Justin Wilson blow through the 9th in 1-2-3 fashion. That feels good.
In other news Jordan Zimmermann just isn’t that good. But we knew that.
We are getting near that 40-game mark that Sparky always said was the time to start evaluating your team, and the above realization is starting to stand out.
Today’s Win One For Mom Lineup:
- Ian Kinsler, 2B
- Nick Castellanos, 3B
- Miguel Cabrera, 1B
- Victor Martinez, DH
- Justin Upton, LF
- JD Martinez RF
- James McCann, C
- Andrew Romine, CF
- Dixon Machado, SS
Pitching: Justin Verlander vs Alex Meyer
Not bad for a Sunday Lineup.
