BALTIMORE – They can’t explain it and even if they could, the Detroit Tigers probably wouldn’t want to.
Two weeks ago, they traded one of the best power hitters in baseball. Four days ago, they traded their closer and a crucial clubhouse presence. And here they were on Friday night, with the music once again playing inside the visitor’s clubhouse, celebrating their fourth straight win.
This win came in comeback fashion, the most dramatic of the bunch, when Justin Upton crushed a grand slam in the top of the eighth inning to beat the Baltimore Orioles, 5-2, at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
