Tigers Hold Off Cardinals In 8-7 Win

The Tigers jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead by the third inning and it looked like we were going to have a repeat of the last night’s game.  The bad news is, the Cardinals made a game of it and even though the Tigers added two more runs, the Cardinals made a one run game out of it.  The good news is, the Tigers held on to win the game.

Nate Robertson had a solid start and he gave up two runs in five innings.  The pen didn’t do quite as well.  Wil Ledezma gave up two runs and Tim Byrdak gave up one before the game entered the ninth with a three run lead.  Todd Jones then gave up two runs in the ninth before buckling down with two runners on, finishing up the Cardinals and picking up the save.

Ivan Rodriguez had a huge three run homer in the win.  Sean Casey had another nice game and he went two for four with a run and Gary Sheffield belted his eighth homerun of the season.

Justin Verlander gets the start tomorrow and the Tigers try to finish up the sweep.  Brad Thompson will be the Tigers opposition.  I like our chances with his matchup.
