The good news is, Mike Maroth threw five shutout innings. The bad news is, he ended up throwing six total and in the fifth inning, he was hit hard for five runs. The big hit was a three run shot to Christian Guzman of all people. On a good note, he didn’t walk anybody and he did strike out five. Todd Jones pitched two scorless and Aquilino Lopez closed the game out with a no hit ninth.
At the plate, Ivan Rodriguez doubled twice and scorded a run in the 6-5 win. Placido Polanco and Ryan Rayburn each had two hits a piece and they each scored a run.
The Tigers take on the Braves in the evening tomorrow and it’ll be on FSN. Game time is 7:05 and I’ll probably get to catch the last half of the game.
