Game 2014.26: Tigers 9, Royals 4

1st place Detroit (16-9) wraps up the series (and the road trip) against still 2nd place Kansas City (14-15). Mention of anything related to brooms is strictly prohibited until the game is concluded. A Royals fan would bristle at the suggestion.

POSTGAME: Didn’t seem like either side played well at all today. I don’t know what’s so hard about hitting a guy holding a stick from 60 feet away, especially when he’s standing still, but time after time after time, the ball-throwers kept missing badly, except for once. Fortunately, the judges awarded more points to our side. But seriously… or even more seriously…

If not everyone on offense is exactly “hot”, nobody is really “cold” either. Everyone is contributing something right now.

Ab-o-lutely.

17-9 and way out in front, homeward bound on a 5-game roll. Bring on the Astros and let’s see us some Robbie Ray, and hope that they don’t do him the disservice of slotting him in so that his (potential) second start is against the Orioles or the Red Sox.
