Tigers Lose In Ten to Twins

by @ 4:03 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - May, Daryl Patterson, Dennis Ribant, Jim Northrup, John Hiller

May 2, 1968 at Tiger Stadium
Twins 3, Tigers 2  (13-6)

The Twins turned the tables on the Tigers in a ten inning, 3-2 game that replicated the previous days scores with the sides being switched.  Still, it was a solid game as Jim Northrup drilled a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into extra frames.  Still, Dennis Ribant gave up a pair of hits which resulted in a tenth inning run as the Tigers took the loss.  Prior to that, John Hiller and Daryl Patterson threw two scoreless innings a piece to keep the Tigers in the game.

Northrup had the big day at the plate.  He went two for three with the solo homer, a walk and he scored both Tigers’ runs.
