Oddly enough, this memorable moment came just an inning after Soto’s dominant outing. The 2019 Detroit Tigers were one of the worst offensive teams in MLB history, so the club spent the offseason adding four veteran hitters to help bolster the lineup. Things didn’t look much better in the first game of the year, when the Tigers managed just one run on three hits. But that run came courtesy of one of those veteran hitters, C.J. Cron. And two days later he helped the Tigers to a series win with a clutch 2-run shot in the 9th inning.
