Game 2012.107: Indians at Tigers

56-50, 2nd place, 2.5 games behind CWS (who have won 3 in a row, come on LAA).

Nice easy win last night. Haven’t seen one of those in a few days.┬áCabrera was Cabrera again, going 3-5 with 2 runs and his MLB leading 88th RBI. Prince Fielder’s 4 RBI has him tied for 4th with 77.

Though Sanchez’s final line looked pretty good, he really wasn’t that great last night. He allowed 10 base runners in only 6 innings, and benefited from Cle’s 1-10 RISP. Downs and Villareal, on the other hand, were tremendous. No word on whether Leyland was miffed by the relievers’ 5 Ks in 3 IPs. Like Coleman said yesterday, when we get Al Al back, we’ll have one of the top bullpens in the AL.

Check out what Sanchez had to say regarding the standing O he got when he checked out yesterday. To summarize, he inferred that it was better than after his no-no in 2006. Tigers fans are the best.

Today’s match-up features the Tigers 2nd half ace, Douglas Wildes Fister, going for his 5th quality start in a row, and 5th win in 6 tries. Over his last 5 starts, Fister has a 1.00 WHIP, and a 33/8 K/BB. ┬áHis ERA during that time is a sparkling 2.50.

Carlos Guillen will be inducted into the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame prior to tonight’s game.

Headed to a pool to get out of the scorching Texas heat, if I can’t get to the lineups, someone please post when they are avail. I read this morning that Dirks will sit in favor of DY b/c DY is 10-23 off of Jimenez (DY’s .645 OPS against righties be damned…Dirks’ is .944 v. righties).

  3. Can we please put a ban on the word “tremendous” until the Tigers win the World Series? It’s Dombrowski’s and Leyland’s favorite adjective, and I can only take so much of them these days.

  4. Rumor has it Carlos Guillen will visit the broadcast booth tonight. It is good to see the Tigers give him a proper send off.Does he have any kids that can play 2nd?

  5. I hope we don’t get shafted out of the possibility of a win ….. by the weather a second time in a week!

  6. Yeah, it appears Fister has it going tonight so it would be sad to see a rainout.

  9. And Omar Infante passes the R3L2O test.

  10. Papa Grande sweats more per inning pitched.

  11. After getting special permission from Bud Selig to bat the four lefties in a row…Mumbles immediately abandons the idea after cracking out 16 hits last night

  12. The un-holy four all batting in arow come thru with flying colors…..5 hits..4 runs…4 rbi…
    Now in two consecutive games the 4 of them accomplish more than they did in the previous 8 added together
