This time, the Tigers didn’t let a good outing by Jeremy Bonderman go to waste. He pitched seven strong innings, giving up only four hits, three walks and one run, while striking out five. Jeremy now sits at 4-2, which is a fry cry from his 6-19 record last year.
Rondell White and Craig Monroe homered for Detroit, but the most suprising stat came from Alex Sanchez. He doubled his season walk total by drawing two walks.
With the win, the Tigers are back to .500, as they currently stand at 19-19. The Tigers didn’t win their 19th game last year until July 1.
Just a few quick notes. First off, and I heard this from someone so it’s second hand information, but WDFN gave credit for “breaking” the story that the Singing Hot Dog Vendor was silenced to someone over at the Detroit Sports Report on Tuesday. Of course this is hardly breaking news to those of you who frequent this site, because I talked about it late Friday.
Second, I have preliminary plans to make sure there’s a transition, but my wife is due basically any day now. So if you stop by and I haven’t updated, it’s not because I’m lazy (at least this time it isn’t), it’s because I can’t get at a computer. I do have a guest writer lined up, so hopefully there won’t be a noticable break.
