Mini-skid Continues as Tigers Lose in 10

Jason Johnson did about all he could in this one, and had his best outing of the year, going 6 1/3, giving up only four hits, and striking out four. The only run against him was a leadoff homerun by Ichiro. But a lack of run support and a two run homer by Raul Ibanez in the 10th would send the Tigers away with another loss, their fourth in five games.

The Tigers only managed four hits, with the sole run coming on a Bobby Higginson sac fly.

And now, the Tigers sit one game above .500. It would be nice if they can keep their head above water, but since the 4-0 start, the Tigers haven’t been able to rise above that “four games above .500 mark.” They’ve matched it, but never topped that resistance level (sorry, the stock market analyst is coming out in me).

The listed starters for today are Bonderman vs. Franklin, but I know the Tigers have been doing some shuffling, so I’m not sure if this will still be the case. If so, hopefully Jeremy can bounce back from his two most recent sub-par outings.
