So I shut the Tigers/Twins game off when the Twins stretched their lead to 6-3 last night. I went to bed thinking the Sox would be 4-1/2 games back going into the Red Sox series beginning this evening at Fenway Park. Instead the Tigers represented the grit and toughness of their manager, Jim Leyland, and won 10-9 in extra innings.

What’s even better the Twins were forced to use their starter for tonight’s game against the Texas Rangers, Nick Blackburn, so the Twins have no scheduled starter for this evening.

Thanks Tigers for helping out the Sox last night, now White Sox… carpe diem!
