Darin Downs made his Major League debut on Tuesday night in the top of the ninth inning with the Tigers down 8-6. Joe Mauer had just homered off of Joaquin Benoit and Josh Willingham stood on first base after working a full-count walk. Justin Morneau was coming to the plate and Jim Leyland correctly went […]
The last game of the first half of the 2012 regular season was not quite as dramatic as the first game of the first half of the 2012 regular season. First of all, the first game of the season didn’t start an hour and a half after the scheduled start time. Of course, the first […]
