Game 2011.119: Tigers at Orioles

The Tigers managed only 5 runs despite 19 base runners in 42 PAs, and a respectable 4-12 RISP.  Benoit to Valverde has been nails as of late.

Mad Max goes for win number 12 (didn’t he have 8 wins in April or something) tonight against Jeremy Guthrie.

Perhaps the most important event yesterday happened before the game, when AlAl was beaned by an line drive during BP.  He spent the night in the hospital and his been placed on the 7 day concussion list.  He was released today, but no word on a return date.  Boesch is still day-to-day.

JLs let’s make sure our poorest hitters get the most ABs don’t argue with me we’re in first place lineup is:

1. Jackson CF
2. Dirks LF
3. Ordonez RF
4. Cabrera 1B
5. Martinez DH
6. Peralta SS
7. Avila C
8. Raburn 2B
9. Betemit 3B

    Luckily we won’t need a ton of runs tonight…look at Max in that picture, look at the concentration, he will be good.

        Time to unleash our ungodly offense….., which we of course don’t have. Baseball sucks when you can’t score runs.

    Raburn with the go ahead runs would be nice after that silly flip play earlier.

    Where is Max getting all this 97, 98-mph stuff all of a sudden?

      He gave up a bunch of runs, was lucky to get just enough run support to sneak the lead back, and now he’s relying on will power determination to cover his team’s back when they needed him the most.

      Coke in now.

    Wow bad angle Dirks took on that ball and no hustle, should have been a catch despite what they said about him playing deep. Bad read and effort there.
