The Detroit Tigers really beat up on the Houston Astros over the course of their four game set beginning on Thursday and wrapping up on Sunday. The Tigers scored a total of 37 runs, while the Astros plated eight. The final score of Saturday’s game was 17-2. Ouch.
Torii Hunter took advantage of the Astros’ woefulness in the second inning of that game by stealing second base while no one paid him any attention at first. Lucas Harrell got caught napping on this one, but Hunter’s theft mattered little as Miguel Cabrera homered to left field shortly after the sly swipe of second.
