2006 Playoffs Redux: ALCS Game 3

Rogers hold Twins in Check, Tigers take Game 3

The Tigers, after dropping the first two games at the Metrodome, knew that Game 3 was a must win. Kenny Rogers took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against his former team to help his current team get back into the series.

Through seven innings, Rogers had allowed just two walks to a Twins lineup that hasn’t seemed to have trouble scoring runs the rest of the playoffs.

Magglio Ordonez hit a sacrifice fly in the third inning to put the Tigers on the board, and Curtis Granderson knocked in a pair of runs with a fourth inning double off of Brad Radke.

The Twins finally got to Rogers in the eighth with three straight singles, the last of which was an RBI single off the bat of pinch-hitter Mike Redmond. It was too little too late, however, as Fernando Rodney and Todd Jones completed the 3-1 victory with scoreless innings of work.

Starters for Game 4 at Comerica Park will be Boof Bonser for the Twins and Jeremy Bonderman for the Tigers.

Box and Play-by-play below the fold.
