Not Quite a Sweep

For the third time in four tries, the Tigers won their series against their opponent. Unfortunately, I’m getting greedy, and I felt they should have swept the Mariners this weekend. They had a ton of chances to win the ball game this afternoon, but they just couldn’t quite come through. Two of their three runs scored on what I thought was an error. In fact, I think Santa Clauss was the official score keeper this afternoon, as I counted four or five potential errors, but they were all recorded as hits.

Either way, it was a nice day at the park. It was a very hot 75 or so, because the sun was literally beating down on you. I made the mistake of wearing a black shirt, and that compounded the problem. I did get to briefly meet Dan Petry and Gates Brown (I got bad info. if you were expecting Rozie and Wilcox from yesterday’s post), and I got them to autograph the shirts they gave out at the reception. I also got to briefly talk to a man who was at the 1945 World Series, so that was also kind of cool.

As a baseball fan, there’s just something about walking into the ball park. It’s like walking into your own little peaceful nirvana (just with a bunch of people sharing it). Even though I’ve been to Comerica Park probably close to twenty times, there’s still things I notice that I didn’t know were there, or forgot about since the last time I had been there.

Brandon Inge went three for four, and is now sitting at .296. I never thought I’d see the day he’d be flirting with .300 in late Auguest. But I also never thought I’d see Deivi Cruz hit .300+ either.

White Sox are in town this week, then it’s off to Fenway for a four game series. Both of these teams are knee deep in the playoff hunt, so the Tigers will be getting some stiff competition.
