Ordonez, Polanco in batting race
Outfielder, second baseman contending in AL for second year
By Scott McNeish / MLB.com

DETROIT -- The Tigers have two players in the hunt for the American League batting title, just as they did last season.

As it turns out, it's the same two players.

Outfielder Magglio Ordonez and second baseman Placido Polanco again have some of the highest batting averages in the AL this season.

"Man, those two guys can hit," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "It's unbelievable."

Ordonez, who won the title last season, entered Sunday's game against Oakland sporting a .317 clip, which ranks third in the league behind Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon (.321) and Rangers outfielder Milton Bradley (.320). Ordonez has hit .352 since the All-Star break.

The outfielder looks to become the first player to win consecutive batting crowns since Nomar Garciaparra did it in 1998-99. Also, he could become the first Tigers player to win back-to-back titles since the legendary Ty Cobb in 1918-19.

Polanco, last year's AL Silver Slugger Award winner at second base, is hitting .314 -- seventh in the AL -- after a 3-for-4 effort against the A's on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Polanco, the Tigers do not face the A's again this season.

Additional games against Oakland would help Polanco's case. He has hit .426 against the A's in his career -- the best in the Majors -- and .529 in the Tigers' series sweep over them in the 2006 AL Championship Series, when Polanco earned series MVP honors.

"They're both such professional hitters," Leyland said.

Ordonez became the first Tiger to win a batting title since Norm Cash in 1961. He hit .363 to lead the Majors last season. His production helped him earned a second-place finish in AL MVP Award voting.

Polanco finished third in the league last year after hitting .341.

That is what I love about Maggs and Polly, they do it to be their best, and help their team!

Well, if M. Ordonez wears them and starts hitting like :nate: pitches, I wouldn't want him to even look at a pair of glasses...
