Two nights after Tim Hudson won his 200th career game, Jake Westbrook of the Cardinals won his 100th career game, as St Louis held on to beat Milwaukee 6-5. We were actually deprived of the exact same historical moment for Ervin Santana, who also came into Thursday sitting on 99 career wins and got the start. But his outing against the Rays ended through three and a half innings thanks to snow in Kansas City, and he'll have to wait until next week to pick up his milestone.
PIC OF THE DAY
Game of the Night: Tigers 7, Astros 3 (14 innings). Hey look, another long game. A Victor Martinez single tied the game at three in the eighth inning, and then, the two teams fell into an abyss of zeroes. Detroit had chances in the 11th, 12th, and 13th innings, but finally broke through in the 14th, when Don Kelly singled home the go-ahead run after both Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder were intentionally walked by Dallas Keuchel to load the bases. After Kelly singled, Jose Cisnero replced Keuchel on the hill, and allowed a two-run double to Matt Tuiasosopo and a sac fly to Jhonny Peralta to extend the Tigers' lead to four. Luke Putkonen successfully finished the game off, and the Tigers earned a hard-fought win in Houston.no comments
