PREGAME: It’s the third series of the season, and the Tigers are facing a team for the second time. Where would we be without the unbalanced schedule? Dare to dream.
If the Luke Hochevar and Max Scherzer pitching match-up seems like deja vu, it’s because we’ve seen it before. I’m going out on a limb here, but I bet there are more runs scored this time than in last week’s 2-1 11 inning affair.
Fun fact of the day: the Tigers lead the league in batting average and on base percentage. I’m sure yesterday’s 29 baserunners had something to do with that.
Your Sizemore-got-3-hits-yesterday-so-we’ll-rest-him-today lineup:
- Jackson, CF
- Damon, DH
- Ordonez, RF
- Cabrera, 1B
- Guillen, LF
- Inge, 3B
- Avila, C
- Raburn, 2B
- Santiago, SS
Oh yeah, and Amber Grand is singing the National Anthem today. I’ve got a good feeling.
POSTGAME: No part of this game made sense. Amber Grand sings and they lose. Magglio goes hitless. Scherzer gets rocked. Yuniesky Betancourt continues to get on base. The Tigers made 4 errors. There’s nothing good to report here. Well, except for the third leg of the Veneuzuelan tripod getting his first homer and Brandon Inge playing well with the glove and the bat. But the rest was bad. Let’s move on. Nothing to see here. Amber will get ‘em back next game.
