The Tigers bullpen has not been good. So after Phil Coke came on in the ninth with a five-run lead and gave up a home run to Adam Dunn to cut the lead to two, there was little to do but laugh about the fateful pitch that tailed back over the plate.
"It was like I threw an incidental two-seamer," Coke said.
Wait, don't you mean "accidental?"
"No, it was an incident, because he hit that a long way. Somebody almost died. There was an incident in the outfield seats."
Well played. (Poorly pitched.)
