The Detroit Tigers played host to the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.
Anibal Sanchez had a great day on the mound giving up just one run on five hits and two walks through 7 innings.
With the game tied 1-1 in the 6th inning, Alex Avila took advantage of a rare mistake from Stephen Strasburg. Avila connected the barrel of the bat solid to a low fastball for his first career grand slam.
The ‘grand salami’ from Avila put the nail in the coffin as the Tigers held on to beat the Nationals 5-1.
