Nelson Cruz has five homers in the first five games of the ALCS, mostly because the Tigers have challenged him inside with fastballs -- including the 99.9 mph fastball that Justin Verlander threw the other day. Cruz turned on the pitch and mashed a home run, the fastest pitch hit for a homer this year; the previous high had been a 98.6 mph fastball that Alex Gordon hit off Neftali Feliz on May 27.
