There was a sense of relief in the Detroit Tigers’ clubhouse after their 9-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.
The victory, propelled by a grand slam from Nicholas Castellanos, a career-best four hits by Niko Goodrum and seven strong innings by starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, ended an 11-game losing streak.
It was the Tigers’ longest losing streak since Aug. 13-23, 2003. They have not lost 12 in a row since 1996.
The losing streak was the longest by two games in the majors this season and the longest since the Los Angeles Dodgers lost 11 in a row last September.
We’ve had our chances over the last 10 or 11 games, Zimmermann said. It’s just a matter of if we’re going to cash in when we’ve got guys in scoring position. We were able to do that today.
The Blue Jays (39-44) are expected to trade Happ before the July 31 deadline. When he departed in the sixth inning, the Canada Day crowd gave him an ovation.
I did notice, and I certainly appreciate that, Happ said. Maybe it was appreciation for how the season has gone so far or whatever you might take from it, that’s kind of what I took from it. That’s a nice feeling, certainly nicer than potentially getting booed, not that I would expect that at all, either.
Bridges has every quality one would want in Authentic Tommylee Lewis Jersey a 3-and-D forward. He makes 3-pointers and plays defense. But more than that, he has length, power, toughness and character. He is an exceptional athlete who can invent a scoring opportunity when none seems available.
Bridges is not elite at driving the ball. It’s still a developing skill for him. He does not always trust himself when he gets beyond one or two dribbles. But it’s not out of reach for him to become better in that area.
As a shooter, he declined a bit from a percentage standpoint as he played more frequently as a perimeter player, from 38.9 to 36.4, but he finished his two seasons at Michigan State with 127 made 3-pointers. In his two seasons at San Diego State, Kawhi Leonard made 41.

Padres president Dick Freeman (to reporters at the time): While Roseanne has indicated she did her best under some very http://www.officialusahockeys.com/Usa_Tim_Thomas_Jersey_Shirt.html difficult circumstances, it http://www.saintsonlineofficialshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_TOMMYLEE_LEWIS_JERSEY.html is apparent we did not do our part because many fans were offended both by the rendition and Roseanne’s gestures.
