Jhonny Peralta Whalks It Off, Tigers Stay Above .500

Just after Ramon Santiago grounded out to start the bottom of the 9th, my dad and I started talking about how Alex Avila and Jhonny Peralta weren’t giving Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder enough help in the Tigers lineup this season. Two batters later, Billy Zane let us know exactly how concerned we should be.

With the 5-4 win, the Tigers stay above .500 with a 13-12 record. Tomorrow’s game is at 4:00 pm on the evil blackout machine known as FOX, and will feature Gavin Floyd and Max Scherzer as the starting pitchers. Billy Zane personally told me that he will be on standby.
