Tigers Come Back to Beat Royals 8-5

Kenny Rogers didn't have a great night tonight giving up 4 homers and 5 runs in 6 1/3 innings but the Tiger bats brought them back. Trailing 4-0 after 5 innings, the Tigers began to chip away. Carlos Guillen hit a two run home run in the 6th and Curtis Granderson added an RBI double in the 7th to make it 4-3. The Royals then answered with a run of their own in the bottom of the inning on Mark Grudzielanek's second home run of the game making it 5-3. The Tigers then broke loose for 4 runs in the 8th. The highlight was Granderson's two run double which put them ahead to stay.

The Tigers have now won 4 in a row and 11 out 12 as the improbable turn around season just keeps getting better. This past week has been especially exciting as they have come up with 4 late inning victories. The White Sox also won tonight so the Tigers remain a game in front and still have the best record in baseball 31-14. Is this really the Tigers?
