BOTTOM OF THE FIFTH: TIGERS 16 (7) – 4 MARINERS
More runs in a single inning than you’ll see all year—nineteen in the game, nine in the fifth, storming home in front of Detroit’s home faithful. The first warm breeze of almost-summer easing into the ballpark, thinking they might not squander away the Miguel Cabrera years after all. That there may yet be something left.
He’s on the bench, healing, recovering. Watching. Thinking. Trying his best to hope.
