Rick Porcello has pitched three innings today and he’s been roughed up for four runs by the Yankees in the Tigers first game of the day. Three of those runs won’t show up in his ERA though because of a Ramon Santiago error. Porcello did strike out three (assuming he’s done) but he gave up four hits and a walk. It was also a text book Porcello outing because all six of his outs that were in play came on the ground.
Clete Thomas is already two for two with a double and he’s scored the lone Tiger run so far. Brandon Inge drove him in with a single in the first frame.
