G97: Rangers finally beat Tigers, 5-2 at home

I don’t think anyone expected Tommy Hunter to be the person to finally stop our 2009 slide against Detroit. If you’re reading this, you know that we were 0-6 against Detroit this year going into Monday night’s game.
But he was. I’m running out of time to write about this, but he was impressive looking out there.
Nelson Cruz & Michael Young both had really impressive home runs to almost the same spot in the ballpark.
Michael Young had three more hits – now at 123 for the season. At that rate, he’ll end up with 318 hits. :)
Nice to get the win, and even better that the Angels lost, so we’re now just 2.5 games back behind them. That’s the same amount we’re behind Boston in the wild card standings, too.
