Breaking down today’s Detroit Sports action, The Tigers play the Twins in a Double Header. The Red Wings Coaching Search, TJ Hockenson set to make BIG LEAGUE MONEY? The USFL is it going to fail or stay around?
Detroit Tigers Split Double Header With Twins Thanks To Johnathan Schoop
They didn’t wait long to get the bats going in the nightcap. Willi Castro led off the bottom of the first with a single to left and Schoop hammered a 2-2 slider some 387 feet into the left field seats.
“Very nice to have the lead and Jonathan put a nice swing on it, in a couple at-bats, he had a nice night,” Hinch said. “Getting that lead and then hitting the super special spin ball that shot by Polanco was nice in the second to be able to tack on a couple runs.”
The Tigers put two runners in scoring position again in the second and, after a Castro strikeout, Schoop again came to the plate and hit the ball off the end of his bat to the right side of the infield.
Twins second baseman Jorge Polanco ranged to his left, slightly over ran it and got a bad hop as the ball caromed off his glove and into center field, allowing Jeimer Candelario and Daz Cameron to score.
Detroit Lions cut A Kicker
The Detroit Lions’ kicking competition is down to two. Locked On Lions Host Matt Dery has been rocked with Anxiety all day fearing Ryan Santosa will be resigned. The glorious Mustache that stole the heart of every man woman and child in Metro Detroit has not been rumored to come back though.
The Lions cut veteran kicker Aldrick Rosas on Tuesday and were awarded defensive John Cominsky off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons.
Rosas, a Pro Bowler with the New York Giants in 2018, spent part of last season on the Lions’ practice squad, kicking in one game and making his only field goal attempt.
The Lions signed Rosas to a futures contract in February, but special teams coordinator Dave Fipp indicated Rosas was around in part because of concerns about Austin Seibert’s health.
Seibert opened last season as Lions kicker, but missed the second half of the year after undergoing adductor surgery. He is back kicking in Organized Team Activities.
