fan, you have to get yourself directtv. the detroit tigers lead 5-1 into the eighth. doug fister is back on the mound, dealing with torrealba, who has two hits. >> tim: that was a good call, joe. i didn't think fister was coming back out as long as benoit was warming and is loose. i guess jim leyland thinking perhaps in the middle of this inning to bring benoit in there, but first is starting the eighth. >> joe: you get the feeling the leash won't be very long. >> tim: no. >> joe: here is the 2-0. a lot of strikes from doug fister. >> tim: there are a lot of great leaders as managers in the major leagues. jim leyland among the best. when his team is down the most, that's when he's happiest. it's a very interesting definition of leadership, in my
view. >> joe: he showed no panic on his face when when we went intos office tonight. >> tim: when he's up in a series, 2-0, 2-1, that's what he's suspicious. when he's down he shows his players he's not afraid, and again, that's the essence of leadership. >> joe: full count on torrealba. now the two big guns are getting ready for the tigers in their pen. fister will have to make that not relevant until the ninth. >> tim: he's the same in the eighth as he was in the first, inside to right-handed batters. he wants a fastball.
>> joe: so did torrealba, as he gets it into left. one-hops the wall and he will beat torrealba, and he is safe, as the ball comes out! what a play for the texas rangers as torrealba was going to be out by ten feet. good throw by raburn out in left. >> tim: you can't take this chance when you are trailing by four in the eighth inning or any inning, for that matter. i think he knocked the ball out of the glove with his head. pops right out of santiago's glove. maybe not the head, the right shoulder. but the rangers fortunate that torrealba is safe at second.
>> joe: endy got the start tonight. it's ruled a double for torrealba, who is 3 for 3. >> joe: chavez chops it. fister can take it to the bag himself with cabrera. one out. >> tim: we talked the whole game about how fister has worked inside hitters inside all night long. breaking bats. >> joe: he's about to get some kind of ovation here tonight. >> tim: got that right.

benoit came up through the texas rangers organization as teammates. benoit, a texas rangersger until 2009. didn't pitch, was injured, went to tampa bay, and has detroit ever thrived with that right arm of benoit. one of the best setup guys in the game. >> joe: kinsler went around. strike 2. >> tim: that's that change-up and benoit will throw to right-handed hitters with great effective necessary. a lot of right-handed pitchers throw only to left-handers but he throws it to both right and leftyies. >> joe: ball 1.

the double to start this eighth. here's elvis, 1 for 2. a single, a groundout, a sacrifice. ball 1. >> tim: at the very least i think torrealba has earned himself a start in tomorrow's game with that three-hit night tonight. >> joe: here is the 1-0. no problem with the velocity of benoit, 94. the count 1-1. >> tim: sometimes you don't need a breaking ball if you are in for only one inning.

ready for it was raburn, as he whipped it down the left-field line. he will cruise into second base with a double. >> tim: when you are facing a guy like tata, when he drops down like that you know that no breaking ball can go down in the strike zone. it's got to say on a level plane. and it looked like raburn will have to ask him tomorrow if he was looking for this. there's no drop in it. >> joe: tata, who has the rare distinction of giving up grand slams to consecutive hit over two different relief appearances. he deals with inge. first at-bat for inge tonight. ball 1.
>> tim: from a grand slam standpoint, that's not quite as good at fernando tatis in los angeles. >> joe: it was against chan ho park, i believe. >> tim: in '98, i believe, wasn't it? >> joe: two grand slams, same inning, same pitcher. >> tim: unbelievable. >> joe: that ball is outside. the count is 2-1. the red sox, september 3ed and then scott sizemore of oakland september 10th. sizemore was in that second base derby during spring training. will rhymes won that job. sizemore ended up with the a's. a fly ball into left. back is chavez. that's out number 2.

>> joe: jose valverde will take over in the ninth inning, trying to save game number three. 49 for 49 during the regular season. 51 for 51, including this postseason, and he has saved 53 straight dating back to last year. he's got a three-run lead and he delivers strike 1 to josh hamilton, leading off the ninth. 92 from his right-hand.
outside, ball 1. valverde did a nice job in game two yesterday. he went two innings, allowed one hit, but did hit a batter, walk a batter and got out of a bases-loaded, nobody out situation in the ninth. hamilton went around. strike 2. >> tim: that's a splitter, and it can be devastating out of the strike zone. most splitters are out of the strike zone to get that swinging strike.
>> joe: 2-2. >> tim: jim leyland and the tigers hopeful that those tacked-on runs will do the strict. one in the fourth, fifth, two in the sixth and one in the >> joe: into left center field. that ball will get down. austin jackson cuts it off. hamilton is in. his second lead-off double. hamilton on base for the second time in this game, and the rangers are one base runner away from bringing up the tieing run. >> tim: i guess when you are around the game a long time, you are not surprised at great swings. but i have got to say that josh hamilton has one of the prettiest swings i have ever
seen. his balance is extraordinary. >> joe: he can do everything. run, hit for average, hit for power, play the outfield. that swing is like syrup. here's michael young, run everybody at second, nobody out. young still without an rbi. strike 1. beltre will stay in the game, despite that foul ball off his left knee. he's on deck.
strike 2. >> tim: michael young gets on there, then beltre is probably thinking about that high fastball. he got to open the inning and double off valverde in last night's ballgame down in texas. that was the inning the rangers loaded the base was nobody out and failed to score. >> joe: michael young strikes out. one away. >> tim: that split finger fastball diving out of the strike zone to get michael young. >> joe: so young now with 29 plate appearances, no rbis this postseason, out of the
cleanup spot. he got by the rays and now up two games to nothing. they are threatened by the tigers trying to get on the board in the series. strike 1 to adrian beltre. beltre has struck out, grounded out, flied out. a guy who hit 30 home runs on deck batting behind a guy who has hit 32. in front of a guy who has hit 29. ball 1.
>> joe: big home run threats to follow up and down this lineup with napoli and cruz. thexd 2-2. to the right. what a pick. cabrera, two out. a diving stop for out number 2. >> tim: you got to believe that beltre would beat that play if he weren't limping. but a traffic play by miguel cabrera to get beltre. >> joe: it was cabrera who
this game is over! kelly made the play in the corner and the detroit tigers win it, 5-2. down two games to one. >> tim: uphill climb for the tigers, but they kept pecking away, pecking away, and then boom, boom, boom, three home runs, and win it 5-2. >> joe: great pitching tonight from the tigers. and here for the final out, this ball carried a long way, don kelly. disappeared into our view. they called it a foul ball as it was caught as he crossed the
line, and that ends the game. the reaction from valverde as he gets his third safe of this postseason. jim leyland has to be thrilled with the start tonight by doug fister. the best play of tonight's game is brought to you by the audi aa. true greatness should never foe unrecognized. it was by victor martinez in the fourth. the tigers added on, they win it 5-2. they now trail in this series two games to one. so getting a chance to return home. the tigers now are on the board. we look ahead to tomorrow afternoon with hairston and porcello. now the tigers have guaranteed
