Jeff Larish Belts Two Homers In Tigers Win Over Nationals

Jeff Larish had a big day at the plate as the Tigers took care of Washington 10-2.  Larish hit a pair of homeruns and he also doubled en route to a three run, three RBI day.  His second inning solo shot put the Tigers on the board and he also drew a walk.  It was a nice game from Larish, who hadn’t done all that much this spring (although he had just four at bats going into the game).

Matt Treanor and Marcus Thames also homered in the game.  Treanor’s was a three run shot.  In all, seven of the Tigers thirteen hits were for extra bases.

Believe it or not, the Nationals actually led 2-0 in this game.  Zach Miner gave up a pair of runs in the top of the second inning in a mediocre start, but the pen looked very sharp.  Juan Rincon struck out three in two shutout innings while Scott Williamson gave up a walk and a hit, but he struck out one in his shutout inning.  Casey Fien struck out two as he closed out the game.

Tomorrow, the Tigers take on the Yankees in Tampa and it’s the Tigers first night game.  Unfortunately, it’s not on television although WXYT is picking it up.  Doesn’t look like the Tigers will be MLB.TV until their first televised game on March 16th and that’ll be on FSN Detroit anyway.

The first game of the WBC is in the books and Japan took care of China 4-0.  I might watch some of the replay tonight although I find it hard getting into that game.  I’ll probably opt for the White Sox/Cubs game.

Testament rip

Good news for Tiger fans.  Jeremy Bonderman played catch 8MM move and it looks like his shoulder is doing better.  He’ll have another throwing session on Friday, the Tigers will then move him to the mound.
