Seattle Four Hits Tigers in Blowout

Everytime it looks like the Tigers are set to turn the corner, they take a step back. For the sixth time in this short season, the Detroit Tiger’s pitching staff gave up double digit runs (and then one game, they gave up nine).

If the Tigers escape May with an overall winning record, then they deserve a ton of credit. Their schedule the next few weeks contains two series against the red hot Rangers, two series against Oakland, one more series against Seattle, and then their next series against Anaheim. None of these are going to be easy. If the Tigers can win two of those series, I’ll be happy. If they can win three, I’ll be ecsatatic.

Nate Cornejo now has an ERA of 8.42. Even in his one victory, he gave up four earned runs, and it was the only time he pitched into the sixth inning. And his WHIP exceeds 2.000. This has to put him near the bottom end of starters this year. I think Tram will stick with him, but he has to show signs of improving.

Steve Colyer has also been a disappointment. In five of his ten appearances he’s been credited with ay least one earned run, and his WHIP also exceeds 2.000. Hopefully he can put this behind him and get some good outings here soon.

We all knew pitching was the Tigers weakness. Bonderman and Maroth have put together some good outings. Robertson was pitching well. But the rest of the team needs to step it up in order for this team to continue to win.
