Bullpen Blowup

Maybe it’s something about Fridays. Ugueth Urbina, for the second straight Friday, gave up the lead and cost the Tigers a win. After a fairly mediocre start by Wil Ledezma, Urbina gave up a two run shot in the eighth. The Tigers now stand 0-4 in one run games, and despite a Pythogorean Win/Loss somewhere around .500, the team is now 3-7.

The Tigers team ERA is 5.00, which is pretty much unacceptable considering where they play. Urbina and Troy Percival are dragging this down the most as they stand at 8.10 and 9.00 respectively. You’d figure they’d have the lowest ERA on the team.

With two games left in Kansas City, the Tigers need to walk away with two wins. Jeremy Bonderman can hopefully continue what’s a pretty solid season (if you take away the first inning in his last start), and hopefully Mike Maroth can follow up his solid start with a win.
