Tigers 10, Indians 8, 10 innings: Miggy’s walk-off homer caps stunning rally
It’s cliche to say baseball is a crazy game. But sometimes there’s just no other way to describe it. Look no further than Sunday afternoon’s series finale between the Tigers and Indians for an example.
The Tigers loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the ninth inning in a tie game, yet they failed to plate a single run. Trailing by three runs in the bottom of the 10th, down to their final out, facing a closer who had allowed them one run in seven innings, the Tigers miraculously put together a five-run, come-from-behind rally for a 10-8 victory, capped off by Miguel Cabrera’s walk-off home run.
“I don’t know what [or] how you would explain what that is other than magic,” catcher Alex Avila said. (MLB.com)
