Another walk-off win for the Tigers. Who thought we would be saying that? I was actually more excited about how Daniel Norris pitched - a perfect game through 5 innings before he had to be pulled due to pitch count. Since coming back from the DL, he has started 2 games, pitched 8.2 innings, given up 1 hit (.037 BA), 1 ER (1.04 ERA), no walks and striking out 8.

Last night, the Tigers pitching continued the no-hitter into the 9th. If they could have pulled off the combined no-hitter, it would have been the first time in Tigers history. However, Feliz came in and gave up the run - losing the no-hitter, the shut out and forcing extra innings. Feliz did hit 99 on the radar gun though. Davis eventually got the winning hit in extra innings...

The other big news was Rondon being sent home due to his level of effort. Bruce really needs to get his head straight and work himself into the best shape he possibly can to have a chance next season.

It took extra innings but Tigers one the first game!

- VMart's HR batting LH was a very good sign.
- Nice to see Kinsler off to a good start (1 HR, 4 RBI)
- Bullpen is still questionable. They had to use a starter to finish the game (Greene).
- JV looked good except for that 1HR. Stanton makes a lot of people look bad though.
- I have high-hopes for Greene. He had a strong inning for his first save but the real test will come during his start on Monday.
