4/5/06 Linescore of the Day: Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan Rodriguez, Detroit Tigers

5 for 5, 3 2B, HR, 5 rbis, 3 runs

When scrolling down the box scores of yesterday, Detroit was listed first.  When I saw IRod’s performance, I stopped right there.  “We have our winner”, I thought.

Ivan had a “down” year in 2005 (.276, .290, .444).  His 5 for 5 effort will certainly set him off on the right foot in 2006.


Chris Robinson during his Illini days

Speaking of Tiger catchers, former Illini catcher Chris Robinson got to spend some time in the bigs with even if it was during spring training.  The London (Ont.) Free Press has a great article detailing his latest efforts.  Illini fans check it out.
