Game 2012.14: Rangers at Tigers

Well, last night was a hide tanning. To be honest, 10 runs isn’t much considering over 1 out of every 2 Rangers batters reached based. The Rangers were 5-18 with RISP and had only 4 XBH. 4 out of 19. That’s incredible.

Despite all of that, what was most frustrating to me was that the Tigers let Yu Darvish out of the game with only 1 ER, despite 5 walks, 1 WP and 121 pitches in 6 1/3.

But it’s a long season and there are going to be a few more 10-3 losses in the coming months.¬†So on to tonight’s match-up. A win tonight and all will be good in the D.

Last time Porcello and Harrison matched-up they both pitched well in a rainy ALCS game 4 until they were pulled late in the game. I don’t remember what happened after that.¬†Harrison has historically struggled with the Tigers, to the tune of 1-4 with a 6.89 ERA.

Porcello has been dynamite both times out this year. He’s reached the 7th in both games and has only walked 1 batter thus far.

Tigers look to keep the Raburn/Inge winning streak alive…

1. Jackson, CF

  1. In a rain delay…In regards to the above, I pulled my journal from the 2011 season and it says that in game 4 of the ALCS Porcello went 6 2/3 innings giving up 3 ER, 8H, 6K and as usual 0BB. Harrison went 5 innings, 2ER, 3H, 3K, 3BB. While the Tigers lost 7-3 it was in the 11th when that Cruz guy hit a grand slam off Papa Grande. Oh, and by the way, Inge was the Tiger star of that game with a homer and single.

  2. Looks like it is going to be another one of those games against Texas… And we have Inge to thanks and 2nd base for yet another infield error… I’m ready for Texas to leave, but, of course, this had to be a four game series…
