5-Hit Blitz by Allen
No matter what the Detroit Tigers threw at him today, Greg Allen hit it. He easily handled Tigers pitching, going 5 for 6 and helping the Indians to a 15-11 triumph at Comerica Park.
“The way I was swinging today, I think I could have closed my eyes and hit the ball,” he told BNN reporters in the postgame interview.
Told of Allen’s quip, Tigers skipper Ron Gardenhire said he “would take him up on that next time.”
Greg Allen singled in the 2nd, grounded out in the 3rd, singled in the 5th, singled in the 6th, doubled in the 8th and hit an RBI single in the 9th.
Allen is hitting .385 for the season with no home runs, 6 RBIs and 7 runs scored. He has 15 hits in 39 at-bats and played in 10 games.
