Jason Grilli Hammered in First Tiger Spring Loss

One and one third innings, eight hits, one hit batter and nine runs against (seven earned).  That was Tiger reliever Jason Grilli’s stat line today as he got pummelled by the Indians offense.  And I know I’ve been bashing Jose Mesa recently, but it looks like (I didn’t listen to the game nor do I have play by play, I’m surmising this from the box score) at least one of Grilli’s runs scored off of Jose Mesa, and then Mesa was tagged for two unearned runs in the fourth.  So if you’re selective, you can say he had two strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA in 1 2/3 innings when at least two, and probably three or more runs, scored on his watch.

I get the feeling the Tiger regulars just played this one out as they managed only two runs on six hits.  Craig Monroe hit a solo shot in the first inning, his first homerun of the spring and then Timo Perez drove home Marcus Thames with a sac.fly.  Thames played the entire game at first base and had two hits but he also had an error.

On a good note, Nate Robertson and Edward Campusano each threw two scoreless.  I really think Rule Five pick Edward Campusano is going to come out of camp as the last pitcher and do as good of a job as he can at replacing Jamie Walker.  At least I’m hoping he does because he really has a live arm.
