Not too shabby. The first place Brewers (at the time) rolled into town for a three game series and they left with three losses as the Tigers took care of business in a 3-2 win this afternoon. Brandon Inge had the big hit with a three run blast and that was all the Tigers needed (or would get) in the game. It was Inge’s 16th of the season and that ties him for the second highest season total of his career.
Justin Verlander had another nice start and he improved to 8-3. He gave up two runs on five hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings. Bobby Seay got the final out in the eighth and then Fernando Rodney didn’t allow a baserunner in the ninth to pick up his 14th save of the season. Rodney needed just eleven pitches, and eight of them were for strikes.
I’ve been told I’m having problems with my RSS feed. At this point, I’m working on it as best I can, I just don’t really know how to fix so please bear with me until I get some help.
The Pearl of Death hd The win gave the Tigers a four game lead. Next up are the Cubs after a day off. Edwin Jackson gets the nod and it’ll be Carlos Zambrano who’ll be throwing for the Cubs.
