Torii Hunter’s return to Angel Stadium was everything he wanted it to be — except for the final score.
When the Tigers finally finished their Wednesday / Thursday game against the Mariners around 2:30 AM EST, it was a classic.
Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter continued to swing a hot bat in Sunday’s series finale against the A’s as he extended his hitting streak to nine games.
“Both teams were cold, they are dome guys over there, so they might have been a little colder than we were, but it was really cold.”
Miguel Cabrera tripled, scored twice and even stole a base, and the Detroit Tigers knocked Josh Johnson out of the game with a five-run second inning en route to an 11-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.
The Blue Jays, who spent millions during the winter to upgrade their roster, fell to 2-5 for their worst start since 2004.
The Detroit Tigers announced today they have sent their top prospect Nick Castellanos down to the minors along with seven others.
Torii Hunter has never had a problem making friends, and he’s off to a great start with the Detroit Tigers.
“The team is great, man, you talk about a great group of guys. A lot of fun in the clubhouse, but on the field, these guys are vicious, and that’s what you need,” Hunter said.
