Max Scherzer got off to a decent enough start yesterday by pitching three scoreless innings but four in the fourth and one in the fifth cut his start short in the Tigers second loss of the season. It also didn’t help that the Tigers made four errors in this one which is part of the reason Scherzer only had two his runs come out earned. Brad Thomas was also hit hard and he gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings.
Carlos Guillen went two for three and he belted his first home run of the season. Austin Jackson went two for five while Brandon Inge continued his hot hitting with two doubles and two RBIs.
The Tigers are playing the Royals again as I write this. Dontrelle Willis is off to a rough start (bases loaded with two outs). He walked two and gave up a single so we’ll see if he pitches out of it. Brian Bannister gets the start for the Royals.
