Mets Pound Tigers

Ouch.  The Tigers were knocked around pretty handily by the Mets this afternoon.  Edwin Jackson got off to a nice start with three shutout innings, but he gave up a pair in the fourth and couldn’t get a guy out in the fifth before Freddy Dolsi came in and got an assist on a four run fifth inning.  From there, the pen was manhandled as well.  The lone bright spot was Bobby Seay, who threw a shutout inning.  The only other pitcher not to give up a run was Chris Lambert, but even he gave up two hits and a walk in the ninth inning.

It’s also bad when your offensive star of the game is Adam Everett.  He went deep with his first homerun of the spring.  Unfortunately, it was just one of five Tigers hits.  Jeff Larish had the only other extra base hit with a double and he scored while Gary Sheffield reached base twice with a single and a walk.  Cale Iorg continued his tough spring and he went 0 for 2 with his fourth error of the spring.

The bid deal tomorrow isn’t even the game the Tigers play against the Blue Jays, it’s all of the pitching action in the morning.  Jeremy Bonderman is scheduled to throw a simulated game as is Kyle Bloom.  Joel Zumaya was scheduled to throw, but he’s got some tightness up near his shoulder and neck so he won’t throw.  Dontrelle Willis and Chris Lambert will log some innings against the Jays, and the Tigers will face a familiar face because Mike Maroth is scheduled to throw for the Jays.  Gametime is 1 pm and WXYT is picking up the game.  Not sure if I’ll get to catch this one (weekend games are tough with the kid, and he’s testing for his orange belt in karate in the morning) but I plan on turing into the US/Puerto Rico game tomorrow night.
