Walk-off hit caps gritty comeback win

Detroit Tigers

Some wins are about finesse, clutch hits and standout performances. And then there are the “grit” wins — ones that taste extra sweet looking back after a hard fight.

Harold Castro provided the knockout punch with a single to left field that sent JaCoby Jones careening around the bases and into a headfirst slide into home during the Tigers’ 9-8, 10-inning walk-off win over the Cubs on Saturday at Comerica Park. But the jabs along the way had a lot to do with the end result.

Along the way, the Tigers got grit from the starting pitcher, who was struck hard by a comebacker. They got grit from the bullpen, pressed into service after just 2 2/3 innings. And they got grit from the offense, which rallied from three deficits before Castro’s defining blow.
