VIDEO: Jordy Mercer Ends Tigers-Yankees Scoring Frenzy With Walkoff Single

The Detroit Tigers, YOUR DETROIT TIGERS (okay maybe not), have just recorded one of few wins on the season, yet their third against the mighty New York Yankees. We cannot explain it. We will not attempt to. Jordy Mercer, one of Detroit's worst hitters, recorded a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth.

Give this Tigers team credit, as they have a habit of hanging tough against potentially the best squad in the American League, if not all of baseball. The Yankees opener didn't go according to plan, with Luis Cessa blowing the lead Edwin Jackson so gracefully gave them.

Yes, shockingly enough, there is some hope in MoTown.
