It's been quite an exciting 81 games of Tigers' baseball, chock full of emotional highs and lows.
At the halfway point of the 2009 campaign, the Tigers hold a slim two-game lead over the Minnesota Twins.
In this slideshow, I'll highlight the 10 greatest moments of the Motor City Kittie's '09 campaign to date. Most of these are no-brainers, moments I'm sure the majority of you remember vividly.
Hope you enjoy.
Rookie sensation Rick Porcello did it all in this one, not only tossing seven innings of one-run ball in arguably his finest start yet, but also driving in two runs.
The White Sox had just plated three runs (almost four) in the bottom of the 9th to tie it at six-all. A loss would've been devastating, but Miguel Cabrera stepped up and hit the deciding home run in the top of the 10th.
Brandon Inge and Ryan Raburn both hit grand slams and neither the A's or Mother Nature could stop Edwin Jackson, who returned to throw three more innings after a 75-minute rain delay (the second of the game) between the 4th and 5th innings.
In a ballpark he did not have many fond memories of, Justin Verlander absolutely dominated the White Sox for nine innings, clinching a series win in a pivotal five-game series with the South Siders.
Rick Porcello threw seven innings of one-run ball, good for his first career win, and the Tigers took the rubber match of a three-game series in Seattle.
In his finest moment of what has thus far been a career season, Brandon Inge came to the Tigers' rescue with a two-out home run off Jose Valverde, turning a 2-3 deficit into a 4-3 lead.
Fernando Rodney nailed down the save and the Tigers salvaged a game against the Astros.
Opening Day 2009 was one to remember as Miguel Cabrera hit a grand slam to punctuate a 15-run pounding of the Texas Rangers before a standing-room-only crowd.
It was the Edwin Jackson show as the fire-balling righty capped off a complete game gem by striking out the heart of the Angels' order, touching 98 MPH.
A seesaw interleague affair took a turn in the Tigers' favor as Ryan Raburn hit a game-winning pinch-hit home run off Cubs' closer Kevin Gregg, sending Comerica Park into a frenzy.
It was the Tigers' only walk-off win so far.
Curtis Granderson made a catch for the ages, robbing Grady Sizemore of a walk-off home run, preserving a complete game masterpiece for Justin Verlander.
This was the turning point of the season as the Tigers would soon move into sole possession of first place, a position they still hold exactly half way through the season.
