At the time, Inge had 10 hits, 17 RBI, and four home runs in 39 at-bats, including remarkable stretch of four straight games with four RBI. Inge, incredibly, became only the second player in 80 years to have four RBI in four games over a five-game stretch.
The other player to do this? Lou Gehrig.
There he was, in Oakland, seemingly rejuvenated by a change of scenery, and Billy Beane's moneyball approach seemed to have worked yet again, with a majority of Inge's $5.5 million salary being picked up by the Tigers.
In my article, I mentioned Inge's career slash line of: .234/.304/.387 and the fact that in his last season with the Tigers, he batted a mere .197 over 269 at-bats.
