Back to Even

The Tigers fell back to an even 5-5 late last night as they fell to the Mariners.  Justin Verlander was good for six innings, unfortunately, he threw 7 1/3 and one of those frames was a five spot (ironically in the fifth).  He gave up a double, double, single, single before getting two outs (although one of them was a sac. bunt) then single, single, wild pitch turned into a five run frame.  He actually pitched into the eighth when he gave up another run but then the game was somewhat out of reach anyway (although Sunday’s game should point to the whole “It ain’t over ’till it’s over” credo).

Verlander struck out eight and walked one but of his eight hits, three were for extra bases.  When Verlander is getting knocked, he’s getting knocked hard and his OPS against is up over .900.  That’s not encouraging and it shows in the 0-2 start.

Miguel Cabrera continued his impressive month and he went three for four with a run.  Brandon Inge singled and drove in two while Gerald Laird singled, drew a walk, stole a base and scored.  All nine Tiger hits were singles.

Ridicule video The Tigers play tonight although it’s a little earlier (9 pm start time).  Edwin Jackson looks for his first win and he’ll go up against Erik Bedard.  Bedard has looked good his last time out with 8 1/3 shutout innings against Athletics so this should be a good pitching matchup if Jackson can do his job.

Went to a Louisville Bats game today and they won. Hope you have a good weekend.
