After a late night Monday night, I didn’t stay up and watch too much of this game, but what I did see is pretty much in line with what happened.
This was by far the worst start of the season for Matt Roney, as he only lasted 2 innings and gave up 7 earned runs. Shane Loux made his season debut, and the trend continued by him giving up 4 earned runs over the next three innings (but to his credit, he chewed up some innings in a game that pretty much seemed to be over with from the beginning.
The Tigers did make three errors, which didn’t help.
The hitting star is Kevin Witt, who went 3 for 4 with a solo homer.
The next few days will be interesting with the first trade deadline coming. I have mixed feelings about the Tigers getting in the mix, so we’ll see what happens.
