Well, this one was a tough one to watch.  I don’t get to watch many Tiger games from beginning to end.  My son doesn’t go to bed until 8:30 or so so I usually get some early innings then the last few.  He spent the night at the grandparents so I got an early treat and got to a watch a Tiger game (at least as much as I watch it while it’s on when I’m working) from beginning to end.  Of course it was bitter sweet because of the end result of this game.

Brandon Lyon made his regular season debut and made some enemies.   He gave up a big three run blast in the eighth and then he lost in the ninth after Brandon Inge tied the game up with his second home run in as many games.

One problem I see with the Tigers staff is the lack of punch out of the pen with their lefties.  Bobby Seay came in and pitched to one batter but once he left, you’ve only got Nate Robertson left.  It’ll make decisions tough because you don’t want to bring in Seay too soon and burn him, but you never know when you’re going to need that out from the southpaw.

Edwin Jackson looked good and he gave up just two hits through 7 1/3 innings.  One of his two runs came on the three run homer that Lyon gave up and Jackson struck out four and walked just one.  I’m becoming a believer in this guy.

Brandon Inge hit home run number two and also a doubled while Miguel Cabrera was a perfect two for two with two walks.  I do like the fact that the Tigers walked five times with six strikeouts, they just couldn’t put more then four runs across the plate.  The only Tiger who didn’t reach base was Adam Everett, but he helped out with an effective bunt that resulted in the Tigers first run in the third.

I know Fernando Rodney didn’t blow this one, but I have a feeling Ryan Perry is going to be the closer of the more immediate future if he ever gets a chance.  My bet is he’s closing games by the All Star break if he lives up to the hype and the rest of the pen continues to struggle.

Never thought I’d miss Todd Jones, but Brandon Lyon is making me think about it. Did you see the look on Jackson’s face in the dugout after Lyon screwed him out of a well earned win? Of course he was being professional about it but you could see it in his eyes that he wanted to punch the guy. I’ve got to respect a lot of the players for keeping their emotions in better check about their teammates than the fans do.
