Hunter, Porcello win Tigers Player, Pitcher of the Month for July

So much for the stranglehold Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer seemingly had on Tigers Player and Pitcher of the Month selections. Torii Hunter and Rick Porcello won the honors for July after standout performances that went a little undernnoticed amidst the star focus.

Hunter beat out Victor Martinez for Player of the Month with run production that ranked among the best in the league for July. He hit .374 (37-for-99) with 21 runs scored, seven doubles, two triples, seven home runs and 22 RBIs.

While Max Scherzer’s unbeaten season came to an end, Porcello went 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA in four July starts, allowing six earned runs over 26 innings with 16 strikeouts.

No Miggy again tonight.

I know how aggravating hip soreness can be. Fine one day so I do some chores and walk but the next day I pay. I know that may not be all that Miggy has but it’s enough.

Player/Pitcher of the month? The more the merrier. It means more of the team is contributing. Even VMart, Sanchez and Fister could win it some month. Would like to see Prince, AJ, Avila, Smyly and Benoit battle for it also. Jhonny?
