Clemens Takes The Mound For Detroit Tigers

For the first time since 2007, there's a Clemens on the mound in the major leagues. No, it's not 59-year-old Roger, but rather his son Kody Clemens, normally a part-time outfielder with the Detroit Tigers. 

With the Tigers trailing the Chicago White Sox 11-0 in the 8th inning, they figured, 'why not, let's have some fun with this' and sent the 7-time Cy Young Award winner's 26-year-old son to the mound for a little mop-up duty. 

Yes, not exactly the same kind of heat his pops used to bring. 

Clemens gave up base hits to three of the first four batters he faced, but then got out of a bases-loaded jam only giving up one run. Not sure how his dad will feel about that lifetime 9.00 ERA though... And what, no strikeouts? He's still 4,672 Ks behind his father.
Kody Clemens' exploits at the plate haven't been much better in his first 11 games in the majors, as he's mustered up just two hits in 24 at-bats for an .083 average.
