The only time you would expect to see the names “Brandon Inge” and “Lou Gehrig” in the same sentence would be something to the effect that both men played Major League Baseball. And both were in the American League. But Inge now has the unlikely distinction of being the first player to have at least four rbi’s in four games during a five-game stretch since Gehrig did it way back in 1931.
While it might be a stretch to say that the Detroit and Oakland match-up was highly anticipated – eyes were on Brandon Inge just to see what he’d do at the plate.
Ryan Raburn is the Tigers’ new Brandon Inge.
A .500 record and alternating wins with losses for nearly two weeks have the Detroit Tigers looking for a breakout series.
Brandon Inge made quite a first impression in his first home game with the Oakland Athletics.
I was in Ohio Sunday for one of Celine’s soccer games and by the time I got on a computer late afternoon there were tweets and emails about Brandon Inge.
Released by Detroit last month, Inge hit his first homer for Oakland and drove in four runs as the Athletics roughed up rookie Matt Moore in a 9-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.
That’s right, I can’t help myself, and I have to check Brandon Inge’s numbers with his new team the Oakland Athletics’.
Things Brandon Inge will say next: “I would announce my retirement on December 21st, 2012, but I don’t want to take any attention away from the end of the world.” Tony @ work
Give credit to Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones. He saw a flaw in Rick Porcello’s delivery recently and helped the young right-hander change it and Porcello cashed in last night.
