Justin Upton helps Tigers past White Sox with walkoff home run

Elite Coby Fleener Jersey Justin Upton made sure Tigers fans did not head home empty-handed Sunday.

Tied 4-4 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, Upton blasted a three-run home run in walkoff fashion to lead the Tigers to a 7-4 win.

Upton’s walkoff home run came right after Chicago intentionally walked J.D. Martinez. Home runs are always a little sweeter after an opposing pitcher pretty much says he would rather face you than the previous hitter.

White Sox closer David Robertson served up the three-run home run, and now has a 3.54 ERA this season. Robertson’s name has come up as a possible trade target for the Nationals before the July 31 trade deadline.

The Tigers (28-28) have now won four straight games. They scored 32 runs during their three-game sweep of the White Sox.

By the time Mazzone met him, though, Sain was living out of an RV in West Palm Beach, Fla., with only one more brief stint in the majors ahead of him.

Johnny was a little bit of a rebel, Mazzone told Sporting News recently from his Anderson, S.C., home. He believed in throwing a lot and running a little. He believed in hanging with his pitchers only. He believed in making pitchers first-class citizens.
