Inge Has Three Hits In Return From DL

Brandon Inge returned from the 15-day DL on Wednesday night and immediately made a difference in the Tigers recently uber-anemic offense. Despite admitting that he would play with some "minor to low-level aching," Inge was healthy enough to knock three singles against the AL Central leaders and bring home the Tigers' lone run in the 8th inning. 

Normally, you wouldn't think a career .238 hitter could make much of an impact, but Inge's early return from a broken hand is actually a very welcome addition to the Tigers depleted lineup. Inge is hitting .269 this season and .360 since June 30 over the course of 14 games.
