As far as the Tigers are concerned, the spring season is officially over. They wrapped things up with a 3-3 tie in which most of the regulars were gone by the third inning and all of the scoring for both sides was done by the fourth. Mike Maroth had a not so great outing in which he gave up three runs on seven hits in four innings. The good news was, he walked none and struck out four, but that’s a lot of hits.
Wilking Ramirez provided most of the offense for the Tigers. He singled and drove in two. All six Tiger hits were single and nobody had more then one.
Next time the Tigers play, it’s for real. The home opener is Monday at 1 pm. I have my fantasy baseball draft tomorrow and that should get me fired up for ESPN’s opening night, which will be the Cardinals against the Mets. And sometime tomorrow night I’ll work up some predictions for the upcoming season. Real baseball is here, finally.
