DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket/AP) – Eight runs in the 10th inning overwhelm the Detroit Tigers losing to the Colorado Rockies 12 -4 on Friday night.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Tigers and Rockies were tied at 4-all after nine innings of play but an eight-run 10th inning seals the fate of Detroit.
Wilin Rosario hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the 10th and the Colorado Rockies went on to score a franchise-record eight runs in an extra inning.
Jose Valverde (3-2) gave up a leadoff single to Michael Cuddyer in the 10th and allowed him to get to third on a throwing error to first base after Eric Young laid down a sacrifice bunt.
Valverde got Jordan Pacheco to ground out to shortstop Jhonny Peralta, whose throw home got Cuddyer out.
Rosario broke the tie and Luis Marte gave up back-to-back homers to Carlos Gonzalez and Cuddyer.
The last time any team scored at least that many runs in an extra inning was Aug. 16, 2009, when the Angels scored nine runs in the 13th inning at Baltimore.
Matt Belisle (3-2) earned the win with two scoreless innings.
