Punchless Tigers Lose Another

Ken Park psp

This time, the Cardinals took care of the Tigers 5-2.  Chris Duncan took Zach Miner deep with a two run shot in the first inning and from there on, the Cardinals never yielded the lead.  Miner gave up another run in the third in a rough outing in which he lasted just three innings.  He was touched up for seven hits but he struck out two without giving up a walk.  Four of the hits were extra bases (three doubles and the homerun).

Ryan Perry pitched another shutout inning and we could have 2006 all over again when Justin Verlander and Joel Zumaya made the team as a starter and reliever respectively.  This time, it’s Rick Porcello and Perry.  Perry allowed on hit and while he didn’t strike anyone out, it was a solid inning none the less.

Marcus Thames put the Tigers on the board with a solo shot in the second inning, his second homer of the spring.  He and Brent Clevlen both had a pair of hits to pace the Tigers six hit attack (or lack thereof).  Ryan Raburn doubled, drove in a run and filled in for Jeff Larish out in rightfield midway through the game.

Tomorrow, the Tigers take on the Yankees in Lakeland.  Should be a good one because team aces Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia square off.
