This was a nice way to end a four game losing streak. Brandon Inge went deep twice and drove in three of the Tigers’s five runs. And the Tigers didn’t waste much time getting on the board either. They scored all five of their runs by the fourth inning. Chris Shelton tripled again and drove in a run, and Curtis Granderson hit his third homerun of the season.
Kenny Rogers had his best start so far. One run on seven hits in eighth innings. Fernando Rodney gave up a single in the ninth, but the Indians never really threatened.
A solid win against a solid team. Bonderman throws this afternoon against Fausto Carmona. Carmona will be making his major league debut, so hopefully we’ll be able to jump all over the rookie.
