Game 2011.128: Tigers at Rays

First place by 5.5 games.  High fives all the way around.

- AJax DP to end the game on Sunday?  Been there, seen that, says Ol’ Smokey.
- Freep had a nice compilation of national articles on JV’s 19th win.

Tigers look for their 5th in a row, to go 12 games over .500, and hopefully to increase their lead tonight against David Price.  The Tampa lefty has only shut down the Yanks and Red Sox over his last two starts, allowing just 1 run in 16 innings.  Bad Brad Penny looks to eat up some innings as the Tigers run out 8 righties against Price.

Tonight’s Lineup

1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Magglio Ordonez, RF
3. Delmon Young, LF
4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
5. Victor Martinez, DH
6. Alex Avila, C
7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
8. Ryan Raburn, 2B
9. Brandon Inge, 3B

  2. I wonder what the all-time MLB record for leadoff strikeouts is? Because KJax has to be in the running…

  3. Let me try a test post:

    Jennings is a dead duck.

  4. Okay…Penny is pitching a good game tonight, now let’s get a little offense!

  5. How the heck can AJax hit into a DP?

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:03 pm

  6. Raburn intentionally walked to get to Inge!?!?!? Ha! That is hilarious!

  7. TIGERS

    GO

  8. Not that they have a great 7th inning guy in the bullpen, but i’d still pull Penny before he comes out in the 8th. He’s pitched a very good game 88 pitches…

  9. the Tigers really miss having Albuquerque as an option

    by Stormin Norman$ on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:35 pm

  10. Yeah…any idea when he is coming back?

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:40 pm

  11. i suspect its going to take more than 2 runs to win this game

    by Stormin Norman$ on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:42 pm

  12. We pull the plug on Penny and give it to Mr Gas the bases, Schlereth?

    by Angus on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:44 pm

  13. Schlereth is about to blow an excellent game….Leyland is guilty by association…

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:54 pm

  14. And now we bring in wild man Perry…this is going to get good…

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:54 pm

  15. That was a close one… Well done, Perry.

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 9:58 pm

  16. Wow, I thought that Jonesy drove a Tigers fan to drink. I always left before he came in since it was beyond last call and you needed something to watch him. Thank you Ryan as well.

  17. Inge’s 8th honeymoon is over.

  18. Goodness this is nerve-wracking.

    by Kevin in Dallas on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:40 pm

  19. no telling with a concussion… Morneau missed over half a season…

    by Stormin Norman$ on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:41 pm

  20. Coke’s turn to try to blow it.

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:44 pm

  21. this is as good as it gets

    by tbran in Troy on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:46 pm

  22. Zobrist was hitting .321 vs lefties this year

    by Stormin Norman$ on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:46 pm

  23. Thank you.

    by Angus on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:47 pm

  24. I’m getting too old for these types of games….Good win and good night.

    by Brenden on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:48 pm

  25. Phil COKE Ladies and Gents!!

    by Kevin in Dallas on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:48 pm

  26. Coke was dealing today – he threw 51 pitches… i guess that early season starting work paid off today… another HUGE win… didn’t have to use Benoit or Valverde, and beat an almost flawless Price

    by Stormin Norman$ on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:49 pm

  27. dog days dominance

    by JOE Z on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:51 pm

  28. LAA with the bases juiced, 1 down,bottom of the 9th, 4-4 with CWS.

    by Kevin in Dallas on Aug 24, 2011 at 12:54 am

  29. Flipped it on just in time to see Bourjos’ game winning single. After a long silence, Harrelson chimes in with “Angels win this gift game. Wrapped up with a bow tie from the White Sox.”

    Apparently he missed the top of the 8th when the White Sox were behind by a run and had to score there and hold just to get to the bottom of the 9th.

    by Kevin in Dallas on Aug 24, 2011 at 12:59 am

  30. Harrelson is a hopeless homer – that annoys even CWS’ fans
