A memorable inning

I think the scorecard tells the story (as scorecards should). The 4th inning was a thing of beauty and majesty and an inning that won’t be forgotten for quite some time.

The rookies were of course the story of the night. Scott Sizemore and Brennan Boesch both getting their first career homers in the 4th inning. Austin Jackson’s perfect 5 for 5 was exciting to see. It was a pretty special night and seeing Boesch’s emotion had to bring a smile to even the most jaded of sports fans.

I was at the game (some photos below), and can’t really judge Porcello’s location. What I do know is that he was a groundball machine and happened to give up a homer at the worst time, after 2 ground ball singles. So he was getting the grounders, but like in the other games a few too many balls were drilled as well. So maybe we call it improvement, but there’s still work to be done?

  2. Rookies have been very impressive. I love Boesch’s excitement rounding the bases on his slam. It reminds me of my boys when they got their first Play Station for Christmas.

    During spring training Tiger brass went on about the high quality of players in the system, especially position players. Meanwhile, blogs, magazines, baseball sites were largely unimpressed. While there is a LONG way to go the early results have been a lot of fun to see.
