Also the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Were Miggy and Javy at one time Clemente Award winners or nominees?

second edit. Miggy is one of the nominees this year

They said on yesterdays broadcast that players of Puerto Rico descent or past winners or current nominees for the Roberto Clemente award were eligible to wear #21.

Nice start for SGL. Looking at his minors numbers this year, he had elevated FIPs, including 5-plus in Toledo, mainly because he gave up great gobs of bombs. As a result, his xFIP, which is FIP adjusted back to league-average home run rate, is sub-4. I don’t know if that explains his dominating his first two starts. But it is a data point.

Lange gets the W!

 W + BS. Actually that's pretty appropriate notation. I think the scouting has caught up with Lange and while he's gotten his earlier streak of wildness under better control, I don't see him being dominant again unless he comes up with a new pitch or two.

Whew. Win #69. Didn’t come easy though. Go 8-6 rest of way to match the Tigers’ best record since 2016, at 77-85. I think that makes me sad not happy. 

The last couple of times they got back to 10 under they promptly crashed. Here's hoping for a better result this time.
