TWINS CHASE ZIMM, THEN HOLD ON.....Sa, 7/22/17

WAS YANKED EARLY<<

@ MINNEAPOLIS, MN:

    Twins Alumni were on display in
a pre-game ceremony that ran long
to celebrate the 30th anniversary of
Minnesota's 1987 World Series
Championship.

    The present day Twins did exactly
what the '87 team did on their way to the WS title:  They beat the Tigers.

    The Twins were good early and the Tigers rallied late as Minnesota
downed Detroit 6-5 to even the 3-game weekend series.

    Six different Twins scored and five collected RBIs with rookie Zack
Granite going 3-for-4.

    The Tigers scored five times off three Twins pitchers in a T-8th
highlighted by Justin Upton's 3-run homer.

    Jordan Zimmerman's inconsistent season continued.  The Tiger RHP
followed a win at Kansas City where he allowed 1-R/1-ER with 7-K by

Tiger DH Victor Martinez stroked a T-2nd opposite field single to LField on July 7TH, 2017 at Cleveland for his 2,000th career MLB hit.  Fittingly, the safety came at Progressive (Jacobs) Field where V-Mart played his first eight big league seasons for the Indians.  Of Victor's first 2,000 hits, how many came in a Cleveland uniform?

  • Fan Fact

    JULY 23, 2008:     The Tigers took a 5-0/T-3rd  lead before their starting pitcher Armando Galarraga had even thrown 19-pitches and went on to a 7-1 win at Kansas City to complete a 3-game series sweep of the Royals. Galarraga retired the first 18 men he faced, taking a perfect game into the B-7th where KC lead-off man David DeJesus broke the spell with a single on a 3-2 fastball. DeJesus, who later doubled in the B-8th, went 2-for-4 for half of KC's four basehits. The Royals got 1-R on 3-H and 1-W off Galarraga, who struck-out a new career-high of eight in his 7-IP for the win (8-4). Kansas City starter Zack Greinke gave up 5-R/5-ER in 6-IP for the loss (7-7), dropping to 0-&-3 in his last five starts. Placido Polanco and Magglio Ordonez were both 3-for-5 while Miguel Cabrera and Edgar Renteria were both 2-for-4 for Detroit. Maggs had 2-RBI and Cabrera 3-RBI. Cabrera had 10-RBI in the 3-game series where Detroit outscored the Royals 31-6.  


    POW Award

    J.D. MARTINEZ
    Clubbing at a torrid pace from mid-May through July 1ST after coming off the DL, Martinez went homerless in the last eight games entering the All-Star break.  He returned from vacation with a vengeance, going deep twice to help the Tigers take two of three at home from Toronto July 14TH--16TH.  In the July 15TH 11-1 rout of the Blue Jays, Martinez had a 2-run single, double and 3rHR (#15) in a 3-for-5, 5-RBI effort.  J.D. had an early sac-fly and a game-tying (5-5) B-8th solo homerun (#16) in Detroit's 6-5 11-INN walkoff win on July 16TH.  For the short week Martinez went 5-for-11 (.455-BA) with a double, 2-HR, 2-R, 7-RBI and 2-W (.538-OBP).  Martinez is our Player-Of-the-Week for the period of July 10th--16th, 2017, his second POW Award this year and 10th overall.
