On a good note, Kenny Rogers had his best start of the season. Seven shutout innings, and he gave up just five hits and a walk. The pen did a nice job too with Freddy Dolsi, Zach Miner and Bobby Seay combining to give up just one run in 4 1/3 innings. Unfortunately, that one run was the only one for either side as the Tigers lost to the Angels 1-0 in twelve innings.
It’s bad enough getting shutout again, but to go twelve innings without scoring a run? Five different Tigers managed a hit a piece while Magglio Ordonez and Carlos Guillen drew two walks each. Carlos Guillen made two more errors at third but neither played a part in the run the Angels scored in the twelth.
The end result is the Tigers are no back in the cellar in a tie with the Royals (who have lost eight straight). Jeremy Bonderman gets the nod tonight and it’ll be Ervin Santana throwing for the Angels. Game time is 10 pm so it’ll be a late one.
