Okay, losing 11-0 to Roy Halladay and the Blue Jays isn’t fun. Following it up with a 10-3 to the Indians is miserable. Cornejo was rocked, and the bullpen contributed some runs to the pummeling as well. With the loss, the Tigers moved into a 3 way tie for the lead in the AL Central. They’ve now been outscored by their opponents for the season.
This is where the Tigers need to step up and show they are a better team. Mike Maroth gets the start today, and the Tigers need a starter to get deeper into a game than the 5th inning because the bullpen has been used a lot, and gotten hit a lot.
-Lead off hitter Alex Sanchez now has 36 plate apperances and no walks
-Shelton got the start at DH and went 0-4
-Urbina made his first appearance and allowed all three inherited runners to score
