Before this game started I had to give Delmon Young as an answer to the question, “Who had a three-hit game yesterday?” in order to win a prize. Then during the game Young hit a double and a home run. I have not been fond of Young’s play this year, but he had a good weekend.
The first inning did not start the way a Tigers fan would hope. Trout reached on an infield single and eventually scored. Dirks hit a ball that looked like it was going to land in a bullpen, but Wells leapt and caught it.
But, the game turned around. Dirks tripled in his second at bat. Scherzer went 7 innings. He struck out 9. With one of the strike outs he passed Verlander in strike outs on the season. Fielder hit a home run one pitch before Young hit his.
Fall semester has arrived and with it even shorter summaries.
