Game 25: Hmm, Maybe This Was the Best Game of the Year

ESPN highlights available here.


The Gist: Armando Galarraga continues to wow and the Tigers’ Curtis Granderson, Placido Polanco and Magglio Ordoñez each knocked two hits in a 6-4 win over the Angels. Galarraga took a no-hitter into the sixth but ended up without a decision. He allowed three runs (one earned), three hits and two walks in six-plus innings. Aquilino Lopez, who’s been nothing short of nails so far this year — try a 0.49 ERA — got the W.

The Quote: “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.” — Jim Leyland on the fate of Galarraga when Dontrelle Willis comes off the DL.

The Stat: 102.4%. That’s how full Comerica Park was on Saturday for a 3:30 p.m. start time that coincided with the Wings/Avalanche game at Joe Louis.
