The Detroit Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals, 2-1, on the Tork Bomb

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Detroit Tigers rookie Spencer Torkelson watched the dugout.

“Come on baby!” He shouted.

The 22-year-old had just crushed a second-pitch lead from Kansas City Royals starter Brad Keller for a two-run homer left in the seventh inning. He celebrated at the plate with 38-year-old Miguel Cabrera, who just won the 599th double and 2,995th hit of his career.

“It was awesome,” Torkelson said. “Truly special moment. This round doesn’t happen without his double.”
