Ivan Rodriguez Shines, Kenny Rogers Struggles In Tigers Win Over Braves

Ivan Rodriguez broked out of his spring slump in a big way with three extra base hits in the Tigers 9-6 win over the Braves.  He doubled twice, homered, drove in two and scored three times.  Brandon Inge got the start at third base and he homered for the first time this spring while Carlos Guillen, Ryan Rabun and Freddy Guzman all had a pair of hits.

Kenny Rogers had a tough start and he didn’t even make it through his three innings.  He gave up three runs in 2 1/3 innings while Virgil Vasquez both blew his second save and won his second game with 2 2/3 innings.  Tim Byrdak didn’t allow a baserunner in his inning of work.

The Tigers continue their afternoon games tomorrow against the Jays.  Jeremy Bonderman gets the start and with this being his third start, he should throw more then just a cursory three innings.  It’ll be on the radio.

It looks like quite a few Tigers have their share of nicks.  The leg injury to Gary Sheffield is particularly troubling.
