Down 8-1, Tigers execute comeback for the ages, 9-8

Post  Admin on Sat Sep 03, 2011 9:15 pm

Miguel Cabrera hit a game-ending solo homerun in the ninth inning lifting the Tigers to a 9-8 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Detroit trailed 8-1 in the fifth and with a slight rain delay in the eighth, 8-6 heading into the ninth. Looking to turn the tables, Ryan Raburn tied the game with a two-run shot off Sergio Santos, and Cabrera won it one out later with his 25th homer of the year. Santos (3-4) hadn’t allowed a run in his previous 30 road appearances, dating to last season.

The Tigers began their comeback with three runs in the fifth on an RBI triple by Austin Jackson and a two-run homerun by Delmon Young. Wilson Betemit’s solo shot in the 7th inning made it 8-5.
