World Champs Too Much for Tigers

Two bad innings were all it took to turn this afternoon’s game into a route.  Edwin Jackson was humbled and gave up three runs in the first before he calmed down and threw shutout innings in the second and third.  Then Rule 5 guy Kyle Bloom was hammered for five runs in the fifth inning.  The good came from a pair of prospects although I’m sure the Phillies had checked it in with their reserves.  Ryan Perry struck out two in 1 2/3 innings while Alfredo Figaro struck out three and didn’t allow a baserunner in the final two frames.

On the hitting side, the Tigers scored both of their runs via the long ball.  Clete Thomas and Scott Sizemore both went deep with solo shots.  Ramon Santiago went three for three with two steals while Mike Hessman went two for three with a walk and a strikeout.

I missed most of the WBC action today.  I just checked in and I’m watching a decent game between Italy and Venezuela.  In fact former Tiger Jason Grilli is throwing right now for Italy and former Tiger Frank Catalanotto put Venezuela on the board with a solo homer.  It was nice to see the US take care of business in a well fought game against Canada today.

The Tigers take on the Yankees tomorrow.  Nate Robertson and Dontrelle Willis are supposed to get some innings.  It’d be nice to see some solid innings from both of these guys.
