Justin Verlander, finally, got his 1st win of the season.
JV pitched a complete game. His line: 9 innings, 7 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks and 9 Ks.
Austin Jackson hit a leadoff homer and Brandon Inge added a 2-run shot in the 5th to help the Tigers defeat the Kansas City Royals 3-2.
After everybody and their uncle bitched about Jim Leyland inserting Brandon Inge back into the lineup...Inge went YARD!
It makes me happy to see Brandon Inge silence his critics.
I hope he continues to hit.
This makes me happy too - Johnny Damon signed a $1.2 million contract with the Cleveland Indians.
JD will spend the next few weeks at the team's complex in Goodyear, Arizona getting into game shape. Then he'll probably get in a few games with Triple-A Columbus before joining the Big Club.
Damon can earn another $1.4 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances.
This makes me happy because Johnny Damon is ONLY 277 hits away from 3,000...which will help him punch his ticket into the Hall of Fame.
He deserves it...
