I caught the very beginning of this one on the radio, and Dan Dickerson and Jim Price made a point to tell everyone that against Hudson, you had to take advantage of every opportunity. They left eight men on base, so they didn’t reall accomplish that, hence the loss.
Ten hits off of Tim Hudson is no small task. In fact, it’s the first time this year anyone has tagged Hudson for double digit hits. The Tigers just couldn’t capitalize on their chances though. Compound that with the game winning, eighth inning run scoring on a throwing error by Eric Munson, and you definitely have a game that got away. The 3-2 lead would stand, and the Tigers now drop to two games below .500 at the 40 game point.
Fortunately they head to Seattle, where they face a stuggling Mariners team. Walking away with two out of three would be nice.
