Game 2010.142: Orioles at Tigers

Our Tigers come in fresh off a 3-1 series v. the Bad Guys, and welcome the struggling Orioles into town.

Kevin Millwood will arguably be the best starter the Tigers face all weekend, and his 3-15, 5.38 line is a far cry from his league leading 2.86 ERA only five years ago.  Millwood really isn’t that good anymore.  His WHIP, H/9, BB/9 and K/9 (1.55, 10.9, 1.4, 3, 6) are all well off his career averages.  He actually had three good starts in August, but overall he’s 1-7 with a 5.24 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in his last 10 starts.  Let’s hope the boys can keep up their hot hitting.

After a rough patch in July and early August, Galarraga has been very good as of late, dare I say dominant? (though he has been suffering from a lack of run support).  He’s 1-0 in his last four with a 1.48 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.

The Orioles come in after taking 2/3 in NY and Tampa.

    It would be great if this meant something. I kind of feel like I m just haning around waiting for football to start.

    Any way Let’s GO Tigers

      I still feel a little better after a W, so let’s get another one tonight.

    I guess the Orioles haven’t exactly been struggling as of late, but as a whole I’ll stand by it.

    Good pitches that inning from AG. I’d like to see him go 7 tonight.

    Jim Joyce is not allowed to talk about the perfect game.

    Damon with 2 consecutive R3L2O fails.

    (But he wants to stay in Detroit!)
