Tigers Win One, Lose One in Final Split Squad of the Spring

The Tigers won and then they lose today.  In the A game, Kenny Rogers threw six scoreless innings but they still lost to the Braves 3-1.  Preston Larrison gave up two runs in the eighth to break a 1-1 game and the only Tiger run came on Gary Sheffield’s RBI single.  Todd Jones was also true to form.  He gave up two hits and a walk but got out of his own jam.  Brandon Inge made two errors in the game.

In the other game, the Tigers beat the Astros 7-5.  Craig Monroe hit his second homerun of the spring and he drove in two runs.  More importantly, he was out in left field.  Hopefully that knee is holding up.  Outfield prospect Brennan Boesch had the big hit of the game.  His three run, bases clearing triple in the ninth inning put the Tigers ahead and the hit ended up being the game winner.  Chad Durbing threw four solid innings and he’s still making a case for the final spot in the pen while Zach Miner was knocked around for four runs (two each in the seventh and eighth).

And if you didn’t know who Brennan Boesch was, he was the Tigers third round pick last year.  He hit .291/.344/.435 in 292 at bats at Oneonta last year and we’ll probably get to see him play at West Michigan this year.

Tomorrow, the Tigers play the Yankees at Lakeland and it’s on FSN.  Game time is 1:05.
