Tigers Get By Twins on Controversial Call
The Tigers recorded their second win of the Memorial Day Weekend, this time because of a conversational call in the eighth inning. Jhonny Peralta was allowed to score the winning run on Alex Avila’s controversial double that rattled along the short fence near the left-field line before the ball bounced up toward a fan standing in a small seating area jutting out toward the field. The umpires halted play, conferred briefly and then made the game’s decisive call: fan interference and a run for the Tigers. The Tiger won, 6 – 5. The two teams go at it again today with Max Scherzer taking the mound for the Tigers.
