Kenny Rogers comes back with a gem of his own, and the Tigers take Game 2, 3-1 over the Cardinals. The lone Cardinals run came during a very shaky 9th inning by Todd Jones in which the Cardinals had the bases loaded. The big talk was the "questionable substance" noticed on Kenny Rogers' hand at the beginning of the game. Rogers said it was a dirt/rosin mixture, but some Cardinals mentioned that the ball "was doing some funny things". Either way, after he cleaned it off he ended up retiring 10 straight and gave up only one more hit through 8 innings.
The series now moves to St. Louis on Tuesday night, with Nate Robertson and reigning (and current candidate for this year's) NL Cy Young, Chris Carpenter, as the starters.
