Andrew Miller struck out four batters in his two innings of work as he impressed people early. Chad Durbin was also effective and he pitched two perfect innings to get the Tigers off to a good start. Preston Larrison wasn’t as sharp and he was tagged for three runs in the eighth inning.
Ryan Rayburn hit the only homerun of the game and Omar Infante and Marcus Thames each had two hits and a run. Four of the five Tiger runs came off of Mets starter Oliver Perez.
Tomorrow’s game is against the Phillies and assuming I can get the feed, I’ll blog the game. Mike Maroth will get the start.
