Quick Post: Tigers Hitting After the 7th Inning

I think by now, we’re about Valverde’d out. I’m not going to write any more about him. You’re welcome.

But there is a bigger problem in Detroit than the misadventures of Papa Grande. This team just can’t seem to hit late in ballgames. Here’s the batting averages of the Tigers from the 7th inning through the 9th:

Austin Jackson: .205
Torii Hunter: .117
Miguel Cabrera: .246
Prince Fielder: .274
Victor Martinez: .239
Andy Dirks: .250
Jhonny Peralta: .258
Alex Avila: .191
Omar Infante: .290
Don Kelly: .143
Brayan Pena: .231
Matt Tuiasosopo: .286
Ramon Santiago: .067
Avisail Garcia: .200

There you have it. Only two players, Infante and Tuiasosopo, are hitting over .275 after the seventh inning. Can you explain it? I sure as hell can’t.

Maybe the team needs to invest in some Five Hour Energy Drinks.

Baseball is a weird game…
