Let’s face it, the Detroit Tigers are not good. At 54-70 on the season, tonight’s 13-4 defeat at the hands of the Evil Empire (the New York Yankees, for those unfamiliar) also gives the Tigers a losing record at home (30-31).
There was one bright spot on this otherwise dreadful night, and it came off the bat of Nicholas Castellanos in the 9th…
It was Castellanos’ second homer of the night, giving him 18 on the season to match his career-high set last season. The 71 RBI for Nick are also two shy of the total he set back in 2015.
Nick Castellanos is 1st Tiger to hit over-the-fence and inside-the-park HR in same game since Carlos Guillen on 5/31/2004. (h/t @STATS_MLB)
