Crazy Game

The Tigers blew a 5-0 lead, then stormed back in the bottom of the eighth to pull one out of their you know what this afternoon.  There was some good and some bad in this one.  Zach Miner blew said five run lead and Bobby Seay gave up a pair of runs in the seventh to give the Indians a 7-6 lead. Still, some decent pen work by Joel Zumaya (1 2/3 scoreless innings) and Fernando Rodney (rocky two hits in the ninth but he struck out two and got out of the inning for his fifth save) along with an eight inning rally with most of the damage coming from a Curtis Granderson two run shot pushed the Tigers in front for good.

The Escapist divx The big blast was a grand slam by Adam Everett.  It was his first homer of the season and it pushed the Tigers out to 5-0. For Granderson, it was his eighth as he continues to push the ball out of the park.  His .263 batting average doesn’t turn many heads, but he still has an .811 OPS. 

The rubber game is tomorrow.  It’ll be the battle of the one win aces when Justin Verlander takes on Cliff Lee.
