Last week, the Tiger’s couldn’t lose. Since Saturday, the Tiger’s haven’t been able to win, as they dropped their fourth in a row to the Pirates. This gets a little disconcerting, because the further we move along into the spring season, the more the games resemble, well, actual baseball games, as starters go into the fifth, and starting lineups are being set.
The Tigers got off to a good start, getting two in the top half of the first, but Jason Johnson gave up three runs, and the Pirates pen held the Tigers scoreless after the fourth inning. Bobby Higginson had two hits, which is encouraging, but only Jamie Walker could come in and shut out the opponent in relief. Loux gave up a run, and German gave up a solo shot.
Still quite a few spring games to go, so as always, we’ll see what happens.
And if everything goes right today, my niece, Brook Goudreau should be born, one day before her big sister was born 10 years ago. Congratulations to Beth and Steve.
