Tigers Card Tuesday... Anibal Sanchez Topps Triple Threads

Friday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, former Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez re-created his old magic, as the Washington Nationals beat the Cardinals.

               2019 Topps NOW Anibal Sanchez (not the Tigers Card Tuesday card)

Sanchez pitched 7 2/3 innings of no-hit ball against the Cardinals, reminding us Tigers fans of Game 1 of the 2013 ALCS when Anibal pitched six no hit innings at Fenway Park, as Detroit beat Boston. 

🐯⚾️ As Anibal was tossing his gem against the Cardinals I knew exactly what card I was gonna post today.

Anibal Sanchez 2013 Triple Threads #16/18 "SANCHIZE." 

To be honest, I dont remember how I came across this beautiful card, it was most surely from a contest on a blog, or from my Tigers Facebook group.

πŸ‘‰ In that terrific 2013 season, Sanchez compiled a 14-8 record, and led the American League with a 2.57 ERA.

Anibal is widely respected around baseball, and from what I read over the weekend, was a terrific teammate in the Tigers clubhouse...which explains this look.

Have a terrific day watching baseball... I'm rooting for the Astros and Nationals.

  1. To this day, I have no idea how the Red Sox were able to get past that Tiger's pitching staff - Sanchez, Scherzer, and Verlander were virtually untouchable! The fact that these guys are still dealing in the postseason this year is a testament to their talent!

  2. Nice game by Sanchez. Really put the Cards in a hole. Also rooting for Washington and Houston to advance.
