Phil Coke blew his first save of the season Wednesday, allowing a walk-off, two-run double to the Twins' Eduardo Escobar.
It should have gone for a sac fly, as a miscommunication by the Tigers' outfielders allowed the ball to drop. Still, it would have been a blown save for Coke either way. Coke has entered the game with one out in the ninth inning in each of the first two games, though that simply could have been because the Twins' lineup is littered with lefties and switch-hitters. Joaquin Benoit pitched the eighth inning in the first two contests and stated in to face one hitter in the ninth. The Tigers' closer situation remains up in the air and a headache for fantasy owners.
