Munson leads comeback to 6-4 victory

Rumors are circulating that Eric Munson will be moved in the offseason after losing the starting Third Base position to Brandon Inge. If that situation does indeed materialize, Munson is giving some heroics in what could be his last few at bats as a Tiger. Munson blasted a 3-run Home Run in the 7th inning to give the Tigers a lead and provide the game winning runs.

Nate Robertson hasn't been closing the season like many would have hoped - but Tuesday night's outing certainly wasn't one to contribute to the group of poor starts.

Robertson went 6 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) while striking out 4. Robertson did allow 2 Home Runs on his way to a no decision. Franklyn German pitched 2 scoreless innings of relief and got his first win of the year, and Esteban Yan closed it out in the 9th for his 7th save.

Jose Contreras was the starter for the White Sox, also giving a mediocre performance en route to a no decision. Contreras pitched 5 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs with 7 strikeouts. Neal Cotts gave up the go-ahead runs in the 7th inning to take the loss.

At the plate, Eric Munson was the star with his 3-run Home Run - his 19th of the season. Dmitri Young and Bobby Higginson also each had Home Runs. Omar Infante had a good game as well, going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

The White Sox were led by Paul Konerko and Joe Crede, who each had a Home Run. Ross Gload also had 2 hits.

At 70-86, the Tigers now have accumulated 23 more wins than they did in 2003 - but the team isn't done just yet. They still have 6 games left to keep improving on that record. The Tigers have one more game with Chicago on Wednesday afternoon, before 5 games with Tampa Bay. The Tigers will send Jason Johnson out to face Freddy Garcia at 1:05pm.
