MLB.com: Inge powers Tigers in climactic return

After being called up from Triple-A Toledo earlier in the day and returning from exile, Brandon Inge said he was going to make sure that the Tigers had more fun.

Inge and the Tigers had plenty of fun on Saturday, as they defeated the Indians, 10-1, and extended their lead in the American League Central to 3 1/2 games with help from Inge, who went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs.
...
Inge led off the second inning with a 380-foot blast to left field on the third pitch he saw, drawing an enormous cheer from the fans. The Tigers added another run in the inning when a sacrifice fly from Ordonez scored Ramon Santiago as the Tigers stretched the lead to 4-0.

The Indians got on the board when Shin-Soo Choo hit a solo home run in the top of the third, but the Tigers answered in the bottom of the inning when Inge hit a ground-rule double with two outs to score Cabrera.

Inge continued to have the magic bat later on. In the fifth inning, he hit a shallow fly ball to left field with one out and the bases loaded. But Indians outfielder Michael Brantley dropped the ball and a poor throw to third allowed a run to score.

If things don’t change, there aren’t going to be a lot of tense September games.
