Once again, the Detroit Tigers rode the squiggly wave of awesomeness, this time in a 2-1 victory over the visiting AL Central rival Cleveland Indians. Magglio Ordoñez’s solo home run in the 5th inning of Fausto Carmona broke the scoreless tie and gave rookie pitcher Jair Jurrjens jis jirst jin of jis jareer. The Big Tilde now has 23 home runs on the season.
Just how much are the Tigers being swooshed to success? That was TBT’s 41st RBI since the All-Star break. Next in line in this valuable stat is the plucky Brandon Inge (15). Inge has no documented accents above his surname. But the hard “g” sound is slightly badass. So we’ll allow it.
