OK, let’s try this again. This afternoon the Tigers have a second chance at attaining that elusive first winning record. They will be working against an old friend, Edwin Jackson. The Tigers counter with the to-this-point underwhelming Brad “Bad” Penny.
I seem to remember Mr. Jackson had quite a proclivity for the high pitch count; perhaps his teammates remember also and we can get to the Chicago bullpen early today.
Today’s Player of the Pre-Game: Brennan Boesch
Boesch continues to bash; sandwiched between the always dangerous Cabrera and the suddenly hot Raburn, the Boesch Bash will be the key to putting runs on the board.
Today’s Raburn-homers-then-dropped-in-the-order lineup:
- Austin Jackson CF
- Will Rhymes 2B
- Magglio Ordonez DH
- Miguel Cabrera 1B
- Brennan Boesch RF
- Ryan Raburn LF
- Jhonny Peralta SS
- Alex Avila C
- Brandon Inge 3B
