While diehard Detroit sports fans had gladly shifted their allegiance to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Detroit Tigers were finishing off an abysmal season in Chicago with a 5-3 loss.
The season's final humilation gave the team a 47-114 record. They finished 53.5 games out of first.
After the game, Manager Ron Gardenhire said, according to The Detroit News:
“We’ve got to be healthy and hopefully we will sign a few guys to fill some spots – maybe get a run-producer in here. Who knows?
But I would say yes, I would hope this will be the worst. Just looking at it, I sure hope we don’t do this again.”
