Tigers Blast Rangers Again To Take Series

The Tigers put on another offensive display last night against one of the worst pitching teams in baseball.  All seven Tigers who had hits had at least two and three Tigers had three hit games.  Sean Casey went three for five and he’s now pulled his batting average up to a season high .283 (okay, he was one for three in the very first game of the season but since then, it’s been an uphill climb for him).  His OPS is also right on the edge of crossing .700 and just a couple of weeks ago he was in the .500s so it’s nice to see Casey turrning things around.

Magglio Ordonez also had three hits and he’s now hitting .368.  No doubles, but his next one will be number thirty.  Curtis Granderson also had three hits and and two of those were triples to bring his season total up to a league leading twelve.  He has six triples in his last eight games.  What’s probably most strange is he only has two triples at home.  Comerica Park has seen more triples then any other ballpark in the last few years. 

Mike Maroth just pitched his five innings and he improved to 4-2 on the season.  He gave up three runs on eight hits and three walks with a single strikeout.  Aquilino Lopez and Yorman Barzardo, the two pitchers the Tigers called up to replace Nate Robertson and Zach Miner, each threw two shutout frames.  One of those two guys will be sent back down to Toledo when Andrew Miller gets called up for his start on Sunday.

The Mets are in town for a tough three game series.  You’re looking at two of the top offenses in baseball going at it and the Mets have the second best record in the National League.  Chad Durbin gets the start tonight and he’ll go up against Jorge Sosa.
