I was in a hurry this morning and I completely forgot to mention Andrew Miller’s debut. He pitched in game one yesterday and threw 17 pitches, 12 of which were strikes. He did hit Craig Wilson and while he didn’t strike anybody, he never got into trouble. Not too shabby for dealing with a Yankee Stadium crowd.
The Tigers lost again today. Randy Johnson handled the Tigers nicely and it would have looked even nicer had he gotten pulled after eight innings. Neifi Perez was 0 for 3 and he’s now hitting .156. All five of hits have been singles so his slugging percentage is also .156.
Marcus Thames hit homerun number 24. He’s got a legit shot at thirty if he’s allowed the chance.
Curtis Granderson hit eighth and Pudge hit leadoff. With Brent Clevlen back in the minors, Granderson is the Tigers best option against lefties. Why did we send him down? Sigh.
The good news is, the White Sox lost today to the Devil Rays so our 4 1/2 game lead is still intact. Next up for the Tigers are the Angels who appear to be out of it. Rosters expand tomorrow, so help is on the way.
