Pena came through twice in the 14th inning for the Tigers. As a result, the Tigers took a 2-1 win out of a game in which exactly half of their 42 outs came by strikeout. A game that threatened records for punchouts Wednesday night ended with Tigers backup catcher Brayan Pena absorbing a potential knockout. Lying face down in the dirt, Pena held up the ball in his bare hand to show plate umpire Bob Davidson and shook his fist in triumph before teammates helped him up. "I got dizzy," Pena said.
