Austin Romine Pitch 9
Welp. They DO go up and away again, and Wick throws his slowest fastball of the night, which Romine promptly lined to the right field wall at about 98 mph. It’s not surprising Romine hit the ball to right field — he has the 5th highest opposite field percentage in baseball — but it’s just the 4th time in his career he’s put a pitch in that zone into play.
That’s one heck of an at-bat. The Tigers needed a lot more to win, including big hits from Jonathan Schoop, Jeimer Canderlario, and Niko Goodrum, and a huge strikeout from Jose Cisnero, but Romine’s AB was one of the biggest moments of the game.
