The Homer Happy Detroit Tigers launched seven longballs into the night against the Texas Rangers enroute to a 10-6 spanking. The amazing thing about it is that six of the home runs, all but one were solo shots, were hit through the first four innings all off Ranger starter R.A. Dickey, who’s learning to throw a knuckleball. Magglio Ordonez added a 9th inning solo blast off Brian Shouse, it was Magg’s 2nd of the game. Chris Shelton (#’s 3 & 4 on the year) also hit two out, Brandon Inge, Craig Monroe, & Marcus Thames also did some yard work for the Big Cats. Detroit sits at the top of the baseball world with a 4-0 record under new skipper Jim Leland.
