Prince Fielder almost hit an inside-the-park home run on Thursday. That’s a thing that happened and a sentence that you can write with a straight face.
OK, maybe you’ll giggle a little writing it, but it was still a serious hitting display put on by the Tigers slugger to help his team avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Red Sox.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette can’t believe he almost got to see Fielder circle the bases on an inside-the-parker, so he’s awarding Prince our “Sweep Stopper” award for his performance. Who’s your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments below.
