    Schoop’s 7th-inning grand slam lifts Tigers over Rays, 10-4

    Detroit — The ball really did hit him. Jonathan Schoop will show you the scratch on his leg if you need proof.

    “Yeah, he told me, ‘It actually did hit me,'” Akil Baddoo said. “I said, ‘Well be glad they didn’t call it. You got a grand slam.”

    Detroit Tigers' Jonathan Schoop reacts to hitting a grand slam against the Tampa Bay Rays in the seventh inning of a baseball game in Detroit, Friday, Sept. 10, 2021.

    In a night of unique feats and wild plot twists, Schoop’s at-bat in the seventh inning provided the fulcrum for the Tigers’ rousing 10-4 win over the American League East-leading Tampa Bay Rays Friday night at Comerica Park.

    “It was a bad call that turned out to be a good call,” Schoop said with a smile.

    Schoop came up in the seventh with the bases loaded and one out and facing right-hander Andrew Kittredge. The second pitch seemed to graze Schoop’s leg. Schoop immediately started peeling off his shin and arm guards, thinking he’d just tied the game.
