Detroit Tigers Week in Numbers – Five Wins in Six Days!

We’ll start with the good: the Detroit Tigers won five out of six games played this week! The bad: it doesn’t really matter all that much.

Sure, it’s always fun to see the Tigers sweep the Chicago White Sox. I will never turn down such an opportunity. But is it just me or does it bug you a little more to see them do this AFTER such a terrible season? Sure, the timing wasn’t ideal, but they still did it. They also took two out of three from the Baltimore Orioles earlier in the week. Yep, five out of six against teams still in the hunt for the playoffs!

Highlights from the Baltimore series include the 11-0 thumping the team handed Baltimore in game one of that series, Joey Wentz‘s second career win, and Akil Baddoo‘s second home run of the season (which just so happened to be a 448-foot bomb to center field in Baltimore),  his first home run since April 13.

The series in Chicago may not have been very eventful, but still fun. Javier Baez hit another monster home run against the White Sox, who have seemingly become his personal arch-rivals. Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Hutchison picked up wins as started, and Andrew Chafin got a win in relief, plus Gregory Soto picked up two more saves in the series.

Your hitter of the week: Harold Castro, who went 7-f0r-15 with a double, a home run, and three RBIs.

Pitcher of the week: No question about it, Tyler Alexander. He started two games this week, going a total of 13 innings. The best part, you ask? He gave up a grand total of one run in those 13 innings.

That’s about it for me this week. Here are the numbers:
