PREGAME: The Tigers go for their third straight sweep with an afternoon get-away-day tilt against the Angels. The Tigers will face Kevin Gregg who is making his first start of the season. In 3 relief appearances he’s allowed a single run in 11 2/3 innings. He’s also yet to allow a home run, and the Tigers have like hitting homers as of late.
Justin Verlander will take ball for the Tigers and look to keep the string alive.
Game time is 1:05pm.
POSTGAME: It had to happen sometime. The pitching staff was going to give up hits and runs at some point. Silly things like a day job kept me pretty much away from the game so I can’t comment too much. I heard bits on the radio including a gem from Jim Price about a diving catch by Murphy
That is one of the all time very good catches that we’ve seen this year
I’m not slamming Jim here, because if any of us talked for two to three hours at a time, we’d all be prone to say some strange things.
Once again the Tigers struggled when they had to board a plane. The first road trip ended with a loss to Texas. The first homestand ended with a loss to Cleveland. And the Angels spoiled the finales of both the last road trip and homestand.
