Doug Fister nearly threw a perfect game, so here’s a cartoon about the fact that he’s really tall! Yeah, I don’t know. The more I watch him pitch, the more he starts looking like this on the mound to me. Run with it.
But that really happened. The Royals did not get on base until the 7th inning, when Alex Gordon led off with a double. Alex Gordon is some sort of evil Tiger murder machine and should be reported to the SPCA anyways. Detroit got six PERFECT innings from Doug Fister. It’s like he saw how nervous we were getting about Brad Penny, how worried we were after Scherzer’s latest outing, and he said, “No no, don’t worry. You can relax. Really. I got this.”
Then the Tigers won on a 10th inning walkoff home run hit by Ramon Santiago. Yes.
A walkoff home run. Hit by
What a weird game.
