I forgo the vengeance of my son.
...But I'm a superstitious man and if some unlucky accident should befall him, if he should get shot in the head by a police officer, or if should hang himself in his jail cell, or if he's struck by a bolt of lightening, then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room, and that I do not forgive."
(Don Corleone, The Godfather)
In 2012 the Tigers were swept in 3 games by the Dons at San Francisco, compiling a .155 batting average during the series.

“We’ve been on the verge for a week or two, we just needed to all finally push over that edge,” catcher Dylan Kelly said. “We’re gonna have to keep rolling in the next weeks, but I think we’re coming up pretty well.”
Kelly was once again the leader on offense for the Tigers, who’s bases-clearing single in the fourth inning of Game 2 broke that game open and paced Missouri to the large win. Kelly has swung a hot bat all season, but on Wednesday he didn’t have to lead the charge alone. Shortstop Josh Lester batted in a run in both games, second baseman Kendall Keeton had a combined four hits on the day and outfielder Scott Sommerfeld finally broke through at the plate, notching his first two hits on the season...
