Tigers Drop Series to Sox, World Champs Red Sox on Deck

Things really looked like they were falling into place. The Tigers had won five in a row, and they had a nice two run lead on Saturday. The White Sox came from behind to take that game, then Jon Garland threw his second four hitter of the week today as the Sox destroyed the Tigers 8-0.

Now the Tigers are riding two straight losses and they have the struggling Red Sox coming to town looking to get their footing back. Fortunately Curt Schilling is on the DL, so we won’t see him. And Matt Clement threw today. Bonderman is throwing tomorrow, but according to Yahoo, both he and Maroth are facing John Halama the next two days. Not sure who will get him, but the Tigers should have their top two guys throwing against pitchers they should be able to hit.

With the word “should” being the operative word. It’s encouraging that we’re playing them at home, because Fenway is always a tough place to play. At this point, splitting the two game series would be acceptable, but with the pitching woes of the Red Sox, you can always hope to take three of four.
