The memorable moment here was when the crowd started chanting M-V-P after Cabrera hit a home run to extend the Tigers lead to 5-1.
Porcello went 8 innings. Once again I thought we’d see his first complete game as he was just over 100 pitches through 8. Instead Valverde closed with a 1-2-3 inning. Santiago also had a three run homer batting right handed. I think that is a rare event in itself.
One of my daughters won an autographed Porcello picture. Unfortunately it was a double due to our abuse of the Metro-PCS text game earlier in the year. My other daughter won a game-worn Bonderman road cap. The Tigers weren’t sure of its pedigree (which game) so that’s why it ended up in kids club. She does think the cap is a cool thing to get. She also has seen Bonderman sweat on TV.
It was a fun series to end the season.
Just wait ’til next year.
