What a game. The Tigers were down 5-0 and they came back to win it in 7-6. Craig Monroe continued his excellent second half with a two run homerun that gave the Tigers the lead.
Jeremy Bonderman struggled, although he’s had some problems against the Indians in the past. It was a great lineup that he faced, but he spotted them three runs in the first inning.
Also give some props to Roman Colon and Todd Jones. Colon did give up a run after the loading the bases up, but he got out of the jam. Jones gave up a a two out single to Victor Martinez to make things interesting, but he got out of the jam and picked up save number 30.
Today is Paul Byrd and Kenny Rogers. While I think Rogers’ rotation spot is very safe, a lot of people are calling for him to go to the pen while he’s struggling. I’m hoping he’ll bounce back here (as long as whoever is playing first base makes their plays) and put those in doubt to rest.
