The Tigers dominated the A’s. Anibal Sanchez was pitching like a badass. The Tigers were about to win a 1-0 game in Oakland.
Then a double, a ball off the third baseman’s glove and up steps Josh Donaldson. People may have prettier stats but he leads the league in WAR and WOB.
In other words he is a bad ass.
First pitch to him and BAM! 3 run homer, game over, cue “Celebration.”
Donaldson beat the Tigers, slept with their wives and ate their food.
