Maybe the biggest stat of the game—Miguel Cabrera had four walks (three intentional) en-route to a 0-for-1 day at the plate.
The number of runs driven in by Victor Martinez. All those intentional walks handed to Miggy certainly helped V-Mart. The designated hitter drove in three runs on two hits. He only had five RBI on the season entering the game.
The number of hits by both Rajai Davis and Ian Kinsler. The duo went 4-for-8 with four runs scored and a walk.
(I swear I’m not doing a countdown) The number of runs allowed by Alfredo Simon. The former All-Star continues to impress in Detroit. He only struck out three, but allowed just two walks.
(Ok, I inadvertently did a countdown… hopefully that doesn’t happen again) The number of runs allowed by the Tigers bullpen. Tom Gorzelanny rebounded from giving up a run and taking the loss in his last outing to earning the hold while pitching 1.1 shutout innings. He allowed two hits but added a strikeout. Joakim Soria threw a perfect ninth.
