Tigers’ Hunter Expects To Play In Game 4

Tigers_Torii_Hunter_2013Detroit Tigers All-Star outfielder Torii Hunter expects to play Tuesday in Game 4 of the American League Division Series against the Oakland Athletics despite a sore shoulder.

Hunter jammed his shoulder while diving for a ball in the outfield Monday during Game 3. X-rays were negative, and Hunter said he thought he had a bruise.

But Hunter vowed to play in Tuesday’s contest, when the Tigers will attempt to avoid elimination and force a Game 5 in Oakland.

“Just sore,” Hunter told reporters after Monday’s game. “I’m going to play, no matter what. It’s a long way from the heart, it’s not broke. I’m good. Give me some Advil, I’ll be all right.
