Good Pitching Not Enough In Tigers Loss to Marlins

While the Tigers took the 1-0 loss to Florida tonight, the fact that the pitchers didn’t allow a single walk must have brought a smile to his face after the last few days.  Rick Porcello continued his early ascent to the Tigers rotation with three shutout innings.  He struck out just one and he gave up five hits, but nobody crossed the plate.  The outing brought Porcello’s spring ERA down to 2.25.  Not too shabby for a kid who could be just wrapping up his sophomore year of college had he gone that route.

The lone run came off of Brandon Lyon and even that was unearned.  Freddy Dolsi was particularly impressive with two strikeouts in a perfect inning.   Lyon gave up two hits but he also struck out two.

Adam Everett was the lone Tiger with two hits in the shutout loss.  Jeff Larish had a tough time and while he singled, he also struck out three times.  Clete Thomas also had three strikeouts while Mike Hessman and Ryan Raburn both struck out twice.

Zach Miner gets the start tomorrow. It’s a day game against the Cardinals.  The Cardinals have it on the radio so I’ll be able to listen to most of this one.
