Tigers 5, White Sox 4; Peralta’s walk-off HR erases Tigers’ home struggles
A year after hitting 21 home runs, Jhonny Peralta went through the first month of the 2012 campaign without finding his power stroke. However, for the 29-year-old Tigers shortstop, it was well worth the wait.
As the crowd of 33,615 at Comerica Park began to leave in the bottom of the ninth inning, Peralta hit a two-run shot just over the right-field wall off pitcher Matt Thornton to stun Chicago with a 5-4 walk-off victory. (MLB.com)
