Tigers Almost Cost Tigers Spring Training Win

The Tigers took on Veneuzuela this afternoon and it was a pair of Tigers that dominated for Venezuela.  Miguel Cabrera drove in a pair of runs while Carlos Guillen had a pair of hits and two runs to lead Team Venezuela.  Still, it was enough because Brent Clevlen singled, doubled, drove in three and scored a run in the Tigers 7-5 win.  Marcus Thames was the only other Tiger with two hits and he scored a run.

The pitching was pretty rough and at this point, the whole Miner/Willis/Robertson race could come down to who sucks the least.  Willis walked three and gave up two runs in his three innings while Robertson gave up three runs on five hits and two walks in his three innings.  Brandon Lyon, Bobby Seay and Freddy Dolsi all pitched a scoreless inning as they held Venezuela scoreless in the final three frames.

I’m watching the archive of the Team Canada/Blue Jays game and Mike Maroth got the start.  He walked his first two batters but got out of that jam but in the second, he was tagged for two runs.  Apparantly he has a knee problem that’s still limiting him but he struck out three in his two innings. Earlier today I was watching the Yankees versus Team USA.  I love MLB.TV.  I’m halfway tempted to get up early to watch the start of the WBC but 4:30 is a bit extreme.

Tomorrow, the Tigers take on Panama.  I won’t be around to check that out but there’s a couple of late games I’ll be able to watch while I do some taxes.
