It Wasn’t Pretty…

…but it’s a win. Number 30 to be exact.

In a game where the Tigers made two errors and gave up 8 walks, the Tigers somehow managed to pull this one out by beating Barry Zito and the Oakland A’s 3-2. Not to be outdone, Oakland made three errors themselves, and all three runs that Zito gave up were unearned. I didn’t get to watch this game because I was at work, but I’ll do my best.

Jeremy Bonderman notched his fifth win, but walked a season high (guess everything this season for Jeremy is a career high as well) 6 walks. His control had been pretty good the last couple of months, and hopefully this was just an anomoly.

Eric Munson had the big hit, driving in the only three runs with his 4th inning homerun. Munson’s shot was his 17th of the season, which was ironic because he also notched his 17th error of the season, allowing Erubiel Durazo to score in Oakland’s half of the fourth inning.

Bonderman lasted 5 innings, and then a quartet of relievers finished the game out, with Danny Patterson pitching 1 2/3 strong innings to get his first save of the season.

Probably the strangest thing about the Tigers in this game was their lineup. Ben Petrick led off, and then Brandon Inge, back from Toledo, was hitting second. I have no idea what Tram was thinking here.

The Tigers now get a rematch series against Minnesota at home this weekend.
