Live with the knuckler, die with the knuckler...still tied at 0, top of the third, Wakefield walks two and hits a batter, then gets out of the jam. Phew!
Sean Casey then hooks a double over the short wall and into the seats for a double. Let's get the train running....
......or not. Robertson escapes the jam.
0-0 after 3 frames.
Oh, yes. Dilemna.
I, like a lot of people, apparently, have been spelling this word wrong for years.
What a dilemma.
Inge sends a sacrifice fly to center for the first run, 1-0 Tigers.
Still only one hit for Detroit.
Polanco singles off the wall to send in another run. 2-0 Tigers.
But, bottom 4, Boston storms right back to cash in for two runs and a tie. A pair of walks, followed by a Drew single and a Crisp double. Then a FC grounder from Casey scores Drew for a 3-2 lead. THEN a base hit from Cash for a 4-2 lead. Here we go, boys....Nice little four run rally.
Sean Casey has proven to be a pleasant little surprise for us-solid, professional hitter. And if Kevin Cash gets a hit, then you know it's a rally.
