Jim Leyland Commands Heroism

Jim Leyland told Miguel Cabrera to hit a home run and be a hero. Cabrera obliged.

After the two hour-long, hard-nosed pitchers duel between Mark Buehrle and Kenny Rogers had ended, the Detroit Tigers corner infielder clubbed a walkoff solo shot (his ninth homer of the season) off Octavio Dotel to beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 Thursday, polishing off a three-game sweep of their division rivals.

You may think things are looking up for Detroit, what with bouncing back from a horrible 8-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians after Dontrelle Willis was embarrassingly banished to Class-A ball, but don't get all excited, Motown. Your fourth place Tigers are still 8 games under .500, trailing the AL Central-leading South Siders by 8 games.

And no one is happier than Sooze about this sweep.
