Angels Crush Robertson, Tigers Drop Below .500

For the first time this season, the Tigers have a losing record. This month and change start at or above mediocrity has to be one of their longest stretches in a long time, so it’s a victory of sorts. What’s discouraging is how bad the pitching has been of late.

For the seventh time this season, Detroit pitching has given up 10 or more runs in a game. We knew the staff wasn’t going to be great, but their ERA stood at 5.53 before last night’s game, so it’s probably up into the 5.7 range now. Nate Robertson, who looked simply awesome earlier in the year, is now getting shelled regularly. Nate Cornejo will be skipped in the rotation because he’s been the worst of the group, and his status is unclear.

The Angels got off to a good start in the game. By the end of the third, they’d have a six run lead. The Tigers did manage to hit three homeruns in this one, but it was too little, too late.

I want to wish Jay, the webguy over at Grousehouse Media who designed Tigerblog, a happy birthday. You can go wish him a happy birthday yourself if you want. Just click on the Grousehouse Media link, and his contact information is on the site.
