Tigers Make It a Winning Streak

Another seven runs, to go with twelve hits, and the Tiger’s are now 2-0 for the first time since … 1986. It wasn’t until their 19th game that they won their second. And it took them until the 8th game to score 14 runs.

Five different Tigers had a multi-hit game and no one Tiger drove in more then two runs. Carlos Guillen hit his first homer as a Tiger.

This was definitely a team affair, as everyone got involved in the scoring. Mike Maroth began to struggle in the fifth, and was taken out with the lead after only 70 pitches. The eventual 5th starter, Nate Robertson, came in and pitched extremely well, throwing four shutout innings and striking out seven to close out the game and earn the save.

The bad news is it looks like Dimtri Young broke his fibula. The official announcement was a non-displaced fracture, and I’m not quite sure what that means, but it’s not good. It’s unfortunate that our DH of all people would suffer a serious injury.

One more win, and the Tigers will open up Comerica Park undefeated.
