Best Game of the Series? Cards Push Tigers to the Brink of Elimination
The Cardinals looked like they were about to take the lead in the sixth inning, when Fernando Rodney provided some much needed relief. Rolen led off with a double, and Preston Wilson moved him to third with a bunt. Bonderman then walked Molina before Jim Leyland went to Rodney out of the pen. Rodney then struck out Miles and John Rodriguez to get the Tigers out of the jam.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, Rodneyâs accolades ended in the sixth inning. In the seventh inning, Rodney gave-up a lead off double to Eckstein, during which Curtis Granderson slipped on the wet grass. Had Granderson not slipped, he probably would have ended up making that catch and we might have had a much different game.
