They must have heard me from yesterday. The Tigers busted out with 7 runs on 13 hits. Newcomer Ben Petrick went 3 for 5, and along with Craig Monroe and Dmitri Young, had two rbis.
Cornejo looked good through 6 2/3, and a season high 4 strikeouts. Chris Mears continues to impress by finishing off the game and getting his fifth save of the season.
Some bad news. Matt Anderson looks like he’s done for the year. This is another top 10 pick by Randy Smith’s regime that never really got going (Eric Munson is still a question mark).
On an earlier post, I talked about limiting the young thrower’s arms, and it looked like Tram listened. It looks like their going to let Maroth go, but watch Bonderman and Ledezma more closely. Good for Tram.
And I heard this on the radio and haven’t been able to confirm it, but apparantly Bobby Higginson has said he will not go to AAA for a rehab assignment, nor will he be relegated to playing DH. I’ve always been a fan of Higgy, but I’m not quite sure what everyone’s (Higginson’s and management’s) motivations are in this situation.
