3. Aug. 5, 2012 — Walkoff home run off Chris Perez

Here's one that I feel like gets forgotten about sometimes. In the midst of a huge divisional series with Cleveland, the Tigers went to extra innings in the final game of the series. The Tigers were down 8-5 in the 10th inning before scoring three runs to tie it.

That brought Miggy to the plate. And wouldn't you know it, he got into a 3-1 count. The next pitch was a fastball, and the rest was history.

This ended up being a huge win for the Tigers. It seemed to propel them in the second half of the season. They would go on the win the AL Central and fall in the World Series to the Giants.

As for Perez, he was a pretty good closer at the time. But he was never the same after this walk-off blast. Miggy actually broke him.
