Tigers Beat Twins With NFL-Like Score, Yankees Win And Land Gallo

Jonathan Grant | July 29th, 2021

The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins are each having very forgettable seasons. Not much focus is being put on them, as they are both well under the .500 mark, but they will have grabbed some attention on Wednesday when they went out and combined to score 31 runs in one afternoon of baseball. The score, which ended up being befitting of a meeting between the Vikings and Lions, was 10-0 in favor of the visiting Tigers after four innings as they made contact early and often.

They didn’t even require a home run during that stretch. They would assume, as most would, that they were safe, but the Twins fought back with a pair of homers, including a grand slam from Ryan Jeffers, in the bottom of the fourth. But the Tigers would simply add more runs to the board in the sixth. This flow continued for most of the contest, and in the ninth the Tigers held the Twins to just two, winning 17-14 after a wild, wild day on the diamond. Elsewhere, the New York Yankees were busy in a couple of ways. First, they got a 3-1 win on the field by taking day the Tampa Bay Rays in extras. Aaron Judge’s go-ahead single was followed up by Greg Allen scoring from a wild pitch. They also landed, according to reports, Joey Gallo from the Texas Rangers in a blockbuster trade. Right as you thought they Bronx Bombers might be out of it, they have pulled themselves back in. Don’t count them out just yet if you were writing them off as World Series contenders.
