Three Pitchers Throw Two Shutout Innings Each In Tie With Indians

The Tigers are still undefeated but they didn’t win today.  They finished a ten inning 3-3 tie that saw Dontrelle Willis get tagged for a run but Denny Bautista, Preston Larrison and non-roster invitee Chris Lambert each threw two shutout frames. 

I listened to most of the game on the radio and there was a little scare in the sixth inning when Miguel Cabrera came off the field gingerly.  The announcers didn’t think it was a huge deal because there wasn’t a mad scramble in the dugout to see what was wrong.  Jim Price seemed to think Cabrera was just annoyed because he shattered his bat on the swing.  Cabrera did double in a run in the contest.

Brent Clevlen and Ramon Santiago were the two Tigers with two hits.  I wasn’t able to see it (again, the radio) but Clevlen made a nice play out in centerfield.

Tomorrow is a rematch that’ll see Kenny Rogers make his spring debut.  Quite a few Tigers starters will be making the road trip to Winter Haven for the game.

The reason I was in the car during most of the game was I took my son to the Plymouth Historical Museum to see a neat baseball exhibit.  There was plenty of Tiger memorabilia as well as some information on a semi-pro team that played in Plymouth in the 19th century.  One of my favorite local baseball authors, Peter Morris, is going to be presenting at the museum on April 13th.  Morris has a new book out called But Didn’t We Have Fun which deals with the very earliest days of baseball.
