The Tigers have won yet another series, taking two-out-of-three in Minnesota. Here are five stats to know from the 10-7 triumph.
The number of runs driven in by Miguel Cabrera. Miggy went 3-for-5 with the four RBI and two runs scored.
The number of hits by the Tigers offense just a day after managing three against Mike Pelfrey and friends.
The number of home runs by rookie James McCann. It was the catcher’s first career, big-league homer. It also happened to be an inside-the-parker. J.D. Martinez also went yard, though the pitch that he hit actually left the yard, while Cabrera continue to show his ridiculous skill at the plate with two home runs.
The number of runs surrendered by Shane Greene in just 4.1 innings pitched. He’s now given up 15 runs on 18 hits in his past 8.1 innings after allowing two runs in his first 23 innings pitched as a Tiger. To Greene’s credit he struck out a season-high eight batters and didn’t walk anyone.
The number of Tigers players to post multi-hit games. Andrew Romine, making a start at shortstop, had a hit in all four of his at-bats. Cabrera and McCann weren’t far behind with three hits apiece while Ian Kinsler, Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos all had two hits each.
