5-0! What do you know!
Though that’s only good enough for tied in the AL Central as the Royals also won yesterday to stay unbeaten.
The offense was relentless last night, coming back once from behind, and then putting up 4 huge runs in the top of the 9th. We could definitely empathize with the Indians fans in the top of the 9th. Allen may not have another inning like that all season. But give credit to the Tigers’ hitters as they worked counts, went the opposite way, and rescued the staff. Price was probably good enough to win, though the runs did come after his error.
Kyle Lobstein takes the ball today for the Tigers. He was called up on April 8th when JV was placed on the DL. Speaking of JV, he felt “fine” after a throwing session yesterday, so hopefully he’ll be ready to go when his spot comes up on the 22nd at home against the Yankees.
In other news:
– VMart said that the knee wasn’t really an issue and he’s not concerned.He’s still in today’s lineup. Remember that he won’t be starting over the next three in Pittsburgh.
– Derek Holland was placed on the 60 day DL down here in Texas. After what happened last year, and then losing Darvish for the season in Spring Training, I guess nothing is unexpected.
– Braves are the only 5-0 team in the NL.
– Adrian Gonzalez is on pace for 162 HR and 227 RBIs.
