Nate Robertson Sharp in Spring Game Against Reds

The Tigers are up 4-1 against the undefeated (for now) Reds in the fifth inning.  Oops, Ordonez just drove home Curtis Granderson so it’s now 5-1.  Nate Robertson was particularly sharp.  He struck out five Reds in 2 2/3 innings.  He gave up a single hit and he walked two.  A solid start for the team’s fourth starter.  Fernando Rodney gave up a solo shot to Adam Dunn.  Blade should be proud.  Regardless, unless the Reds can score a bunch of runs, they’re going to take their first loss.  Placido Polanco and Chris Shelton have both hit their first homeruns of the spring.


The Tigers held on to win today.  They jumped out to a 9-4 lead then Zach Miner gave up three runs in the ninth to make things interesting.  Wil Ledezma also got roughed up for three runs in one inning.  Vance Wilson went yard and Ryan Rayburn was a perfect two for two with a with two RBIs.

Also, Nate picked up 5 strikeout’s which isn’t usually his M.O.
