Tigers Fall From First After Another Loss

Jeremy Bonderman struggled for the third straight start and while he gave the Tigers seven innings, he once again buried himself a hole that the Tigers were unable to get out of.  Four first inning runs put the White Sox in the lead early and for good and two more in the third sealed the deal.  Bonderman dropped to 10-4 and in these last three starts (all losses), he’s seen his ERA climb from 3.53 to 4.50.

Placido Polanco picked up two more hits and he scored twice.  One of the two hits was his sixth homerun of the season and Polanco now trails Magglio Ordonez by just three points in the batting title race with Ichiro still sandwiched between the two of the them.  Sean Casey went two for four with a double, a run and an RBI.

The Tigers try to avoid the sweep this afternoon.  It’ll be a pair of rookies going at it with Jordan Tata getting the start for the Tigers and Gavin Floyd throwing for the Sox.  The Tigers roughed up Floyd in that five gave series a week and a half ago so hopefully they can shell him again.

The Indians won so the Tigers now sit a half game back of them.  And there’s no longer much of a cushion for the Wild Card race as the Tigers sit just a half game ahead of the Mariners and a game and a half ahead of the Yankees.
