Detroit Tigers: It is very, very rare to score a run in every single inning of a nine-inning game. I mean, we're talking count-on-one hand rare. The Rockies (natch) did it in 1999, the Cardinals in 1964 and the Giants in 1923. That's about it. Imagine, then, what a cosmic upset it would have been last night had the woeful Tigers managed to score in the eighth and ninth in Kansas City. After plating runs in the first through the seventh to build a 15-6 lead, their leadoff man in both the eighth and ninth innings walked but was stranded.
