Second Walk Off

Inge blast gives Tigers second straight walk-off

The Texas Rangers came to town looking like a team that could waltz to October. They left the field at Comerica Park watching the Tigers jump around after a walk-off hit. Again.

That's how quickly momentum can turn in April, making it difficult to anoint contenders and curse pretenders. In the Tigers' case, it turned on two days of walk-off hits, the latter on the swing of Brandon Inge's bat for a ninth-inning home run in a 3-2 victory Wednesday afternoon.

Inge scored the winning run both days, but this time simply drove himself in. He breathed an air of confidence after the first one, and maybe just a little sigh of relief the second time around.
