Andrew Miller Hurts Hamstring In Another Tiger Loss

Well, it definitely wasn’t home sweet home as the Tiger started a big homestand with a loss to the White Sox.  Andrew Miller was roughed up for six runs and then he came out in the fifth inning after hurting his hamstring.  The pen did a nice enough job with two shutout innings a piece from Macay McBride and Zach Miner but the hitters couldn’t get their bats going to pull off a comeback.  The big hit was a fourth inning grand slam by White Sox Juan Uribe.  Miller’s injury was called a mild strain and he’s day to day.

Magglio Ordonez had a nice game against his former team and he went three for four with his 39th double, two RBIs and a run.  He’s now back in front of Ichiro for the batting title with a .352 batting average.  No other Tiger had more the one hit.

Neifi Perez’s suspension for using amphetimines was bumped up to 80 games after he tested positive again.  The Tigers seem pretty persistent about replacing him with his clone, Jack Wilson, but the deal hasn’t happened yet and I’m hoping someone comes back down to earth and realizes that Wilson isn’t particularly needed.

It’ll be Jeremy Bonderman against Javier Vasquez tonight.  Vasquez handled us in Chicago pretty nicely last week and hopefully Bonderman can bounce back from that rough start he had against the Angels.
