Tigers Even Series With Win in Game 2


Townhall.com::The News::News Article:
"Justin Verlander and Detroit's bullpen held down the New York Yankees' mighty offense, bringing just enough 100 mph heat to send the Tigers home with a split.

Curtis Granderson hit a go-ahead triple off Mike Mussina in the seventh inning to cap a comeback from a two-run deficit, and the Tigers beat the Yankees 4-3 Thursday to even their best-of-five AL playoff series at one game apiece.

'I hope in my heart everybody realizes we are a playoff team,' Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. 'I'm not sure everybody believed that.'"

I don't follow baseball really, but GO Tigers! I remember when I was eight years old, my mother would stay out on our dock until late at night, fishing and listening to the Tigers until the game was over. Oh the fish we ate!

Hey John,

I know what you mean. When I lived in Michigan I was into baseball and the Tigers. A couple of labor disputes and my relocation changed my interest. When Tramell was named manager I started to ease back into it somewhat. Now, without shame I admit, I am a fair weather fan again. Always a Homer I guess.
