Thames' homer streak
At four games, it’s tied for the fifth-longest streak for a Tiger. Willie Horton homered in five straight games in 1969, along with Vic Wertz (1950), Hank Greenberg (1940) and Rudy York (1937). Thames is the 18th Tiger since ’56 to homer in four straight games, the last one being Magglio Ordonez two years ago.
It’s also just the fourth home run Lincecum has allowed in more than 90 innings this season.
