A.J. Hinch Stands Up for Joey Cora

In an impressive start to the season, the Detroit Tigers extended their winning streak four games after a 5-0 victory against the New York Mets on Monday night. The game remained scoreless until the Tigers broke through in the top of the tenth inning, showcasing their resilience and ability to capitalize when it mattered most.

Controversial Call at Third Base

One of the game’s notable moments occurred in the sixth inning when Andy Ibáñez delivered the Tigers’ first hit, a first-pitch changeup into shallow left field. Third base coach Joey Cora made the bold decision to send Carson Kelly, who is not known for his speed, home from second base. Despite Brandon Nimmo having the ball in his glove before Kelly reached third base, Cora waved him home, resulting in Kelly being thrown out at the plate.

Hinch’s Defense of Cora’s Decision

Following the game, Tigers manager A.J. Hinch defended Cora’s decision, emphasizing the strategic move in a tight game.

“Joey did the right thing,” Hinch said. “That’s a bang-bang play where they have to make a throw from left field. … That’s an easy send for me with two outs in a 0-0 game.”

Hinch’s support highlights the aggressive mindset the Tigers are embracing this season, perhaps taking a page from Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell‘s playbook.
