Playing in the Rain

Or at least, after the rain. The Tigers dropped their fourth in a row to the Rangers after a 2 hour rain delay knocked out the starters for both teams. Nate Cornejo had given up a run in his first inning (on no hits), and Steve Sparks relieved him once they started the game back up.

Probably the biggest surprise of the game was Ramon Santiago got an RBI, his 15th of the year in 307 at bats. Since Ramon goes weeks at a time without an RBI at times, this is a big deal. He made up for it though by getting caught stealing.

Eric Munson hit his 18th homer, and he should get to 20, which is significant because in the last two years, the Tigers haven’t had a player hit 20 homeruns. This year they should have two.

And yes, this is sarcasm, more out of frustration then anything. The Tigers on pace now to go 42-120. We’ll see if they get there.

On a good note, the Tigers managed to sign their first round draft pick, Kyle Sleeth. This isn’t in the story, but if I heard correctly on the radio, he received a $3.5 million signing bonus. Not too shabby, and hopefully it’s money well spent.
