Historic Power Display

The Tigers are now 3-0 after defeating the Texas Rangers 10-6. They blasted 7 more home runs today:

Chris Shelton (2)
Magglio Ordonez (2)
Brandon Inge
Craig Monroe
Marcus Thames

That gives them 12 homeruns in their last 2 games and 15 in 3 games. According to MLB.COM, those are both team records. Their record for one game is 8 set back on June 20th, 2000 in an 18-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays:

Tony Clark (2)
Robert Fick
Bobby Higginson
Richie Becker
Juan Gonzalez
Juan Encarnacion
Deivi Cruz

The 2006 Tigers will try to continue their assault on American League pitchers when they face John Koronka tomorrow night at 8:00. Mike Maroth goes for the Tigers.


  1. Oh, just when I had about completely put Rich Becker completely out of my mind... Oh, the humanity!

  2. I was about to say the same thing. The Rich Becker era didn't really happen, did it?

  3. The name is RICHIE Becker. He is da catalyst. When Richie plays, the Tigers win!
