Tigers Take Out Frustrations On Mariners

In a game that was way more interesting then it needed to be, the Tigers put one in the win column against the Mariners tonight.  The Tigers took an 11-1 lead into the seventh inning only to see it turn into a 12-8 win.  They needed Todd Jones to get a double play in the ninth to get out of what was already a four run inning by the Mariners.

Justin Verlander looked like his old self today.  He gave up just one run on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts.  The pen didn’t do a great job but they had plenty of runs to work with. 

Four homeruns provided a bulk of the Tigers offense.  Magglio Ordonez, Edgar Renteria, Curtis Granderson and Carlos Guillen all went deep.  Renteria came within a double of hitting of rthe cycle and he finished with five RBIs.  The only Tiger regular who didn’t get a hit was Matt Joyce and even he reached base with a walk.

Jason Grilli has been shooting his mouth off about the Tigers having poor chemistry and Jim Leyland fired back with some explitives.  It’d be nice if the team could use this to get a charge.

Tomorrow, it’ll be Kenny Rogers going up against Jarrod Washburn.  It’s bad when you have a guy like Washburn with around a 5.50 ERA and your starter has an ERA over one point higher.  Hopefully Kenny can find his form tomorrow night.
