The Tigers got back to their winning weekends and they capped this latest one off with a spectacular pitching performance by Edwin Jackson. He yielded just two hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in eight shutout innings. Throw in a shutout ninth by Fernando Rodney for save number 10 and you have the Tigers seventh shutout of the season. I picked this up from the Yahoo recap
Money Train ipod , but the Edwin Jackson, Rick Porcello and Justin Verlander combined for 14 wins in the month of May. That’s the most by a Tiger trio since 1993.
Born on the Fourth of July rip Curtis Granderson went yard with his 13th homer of the season to put the Tigers on the board and depite it being a solo shot, it was all the Tigers would need. Jeff Larish went two for three with an RBI and Magglio Ordonez failed to get a hit so his 16 game hitting streak ended.
The Tigers have a day off then they come home to take on the Red Sox. It’ll be Rick Porcello going up against Dice-K in the opener on Tuesday.
