And here everyone was worried about the Tigers’ pitching. The past two games, the Tigers have scored a grand total of two runs. They’ve given up only five, which is usually good enough to win. Unfortunately, the offense just isn’t there.
Nate Robertson had another solid start and unless he collapses here soon, I think you can say the second half troubles are behind him. He’s now up over 160 innings and he also has his third straight season over 100 strikeouts.
Cheers just came on after the game. I loved this show and watched it quite a bit when it was on. I remember the final season took place during my senior year of college but it was a show I grew up with. Of course that show led into Frasier, which was also on for a decade. Anyway, I apologize for the digression.
Curtis Granderson continues to struggle. He’s hit one homerun since June 23 and he’s hitting only .237 in 114 at bats (heading into today’s game) since the All Star break.
Craig Monroe continues to rake. He hit homerun number 20 today and drove in the Tigers’ only run. That’s seven homeruns since the All Star break and he’s still hitting above .350.
The Tigers have a chance to split the four game series tomorrow. And just to make things more interesting, the White Sox are winning.
