Homer Turkelson beats the Tigers to overtake the royals, 2-1

Kansas City, Missouri. – Tigers assistant coach Juan Neves threw his hat. It was certain.

“He shot,” said Michael Vollmer, who finished off the Tigers’ 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. He said, ‘Turk Homer here,’ and threw his hat to confirm it. Everyone knows that, right? You throw your hat down to confirm your shot. You get one in the match. If he doesn’t hit it, you lose it.

“Juan understood it correctly.”

Have you ever had.

Rookie Spencer Turkelson, with Miguel Cabrera in second, and the Tigers fell 1-0 in the seventh inning, pounded a 0-1 sinker, packing them 432 feet above the Tigers’ barn and into a small section of benches in left field. The ball left his racket at an exit speed of 111.5 mph.

He turned to the tiger’s lair right after the call and shouted, “Come, baby!”
