Tiger Hitters Pound Texas Pitchers, AGAIN!
The Tigers continue to swing hot bats and set season highs for hits on back-to-back nights, destroying Texas pitching for 20 hits on Tuesday night in an 8 – 1 victory over the AL West-leading Rangers. Austin Jackson, Victor Martinez, Casper Wells and Alex Avila all picked up three hits a piece last night. Starter Rick Porcello picked up his sixth win time in his last seven outings, allowing a run on six hits in six innings. The Tigers wrap up the three games series in Texas with Phil Coke taking the mound for the Tigers.
