Tigers Pound The Rockies 9-1

DENVER (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers redeem themselves with a 9-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday afternoon.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket the Tigers salvage a game out of the three game series with the Rockies.

After losing the first two games against the Rockies, the Tigers put Justin Verlander on the mound, throwing a four-hitter for his second straight complete game, to help cement the win for the Tigers.

Verlander (9-3) has four complete games, matching his total from all of last year and is second in the AL to Tampa Bay’s James Shields, who threw a four-hitter with 10 strikeouts in a 2-1 win over Florida earlier Sunday. Verlander retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced to help the Tigers salvage the finale of the weekend series.

Brennan Boesch had three hits, including his 10th homer, and Miguel Cabrera hit his 14th homer.

Ty Wiggington homered and Troy Tulowitzki had two hits for the Rockies.

Aaron Cook (0-2) was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth after allowing four runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out four.

    Don’t know if you’ve gone to this site or not, but from what I’m hearing there’s a real honey of a deal being offered on a program that’s going to make a huge difference to a lot of people’s wallets. I’m talking about over a million dollars in under a year.
    The biggest thing, though, is that these guys are not just helping you pull in mass pips and profit, They are helping you keep it and have a 4 year track record to back it up, showing zero monthly losses for the entire time.
    I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely seen some down months in my accounts over the years. Check this out and we can all put loser months behind us forever.
