Magglio's home run gives surging Tigers another boost

MLB

I wrote last night about how some of the game's struggling stars gave their teams a boost last night. Magglio Ordonez has never quite been a superstar, but he has had big seasons for the Tigers in recent years.

He had been recently benched indefinitely after slumping the entire season. Today, he hit a 2-run homer in a game the Tigers won by 1 run against the Cubs. It was only his 3rd home run of the season. If he starts hitting and driving in runs, I seriously doubt anyone in the AL Central can catch the Tigers, who are 5 games up on the Twins. Fernando Rodney will make it interesting closing out the 9th, but probably less than Todd Jones used to. Having Magglio get hot now could push the Tigers to a really big lead, which is not that much smaller than the Dodgers have now in the NL West.
