Indians Best Tigers, Bonderman

Everytime the Tigers lose, you wonder which team is the real Tigers. Is it the one who got off to a 4-0 start, and actually looked like they’d be respectable, or will the 2003 season creep back into this campaign like it appeared to do this afternoon.

The Indians aren’t a good team. And Jeremy Bonderman is supposed to be a future mainstay in the rotation, if not the Tigers ace. And the Indians simply shelled Jeremy in his 5 1/3 innings. He gave up three homeruns in three different innings (two of which were by Matt Lawton), and at one point, the Tigers were down 5-0 after five, then 8-3 after six. They made a little run at the end, but came up short, losing 9-7.

Throw in an Alex Sanchez pulled groin, and the Tigers now have a major hole to fill in centerfield. For now, Brandon Inge will roam the outfield, and with Andres Torres designated for assignment and not yet clearing waivers, he might play out there until Sanchez comes back.

Tomorrow, Nate Robertson tries to continue his impressive run, going up against Jeff D’Amico. Hopefully they’ll put another win under their belt before heading to Minnesota.
