Season Ends with a Bang

The Tigers finished the 2007 season with a 13-3 rout of the Chicago White Sox today. Their final record was 88-74. It may not have been a very meaningful game in the standings but there were quite a few significant individual accomplishments today:

  • Magglio Ordonez went 3 for 4 to finish with a .363 batting average and became the first Tiger to win a batting title since Norm Cash in 1961.
  • Placido Polanco got his 200th hit and finished with a .341 batting average (3rd in the league). He also completed the season with zero errors.
  • Carlos Guillen went 2 for 4 with a homer and 4 RBI and reached triple digits in RBI for the first time with 102.
  • Curtis Granderson went 3 for 4 with 3 steals and finished with a .302 batting average.
  • Mike Rabelo hit his first major league homer.
  • Sean Casey singled in his last at bat as a Tiger.
I will have lots more statistical summaries and season memories in the coming weeks.
