Yesterday was a bit of a throwaway game, what with Buck Farmer on the mound and Miguel Cabrera on the bench. Still, It was nice to see JD Martinez and Andrew Romine stay hot. When Romine led off the 3rd with a double and then stole 3rd, I thought maybe the Tigers had a chance to take this one. Alas, he was left there at 3rd, and that was that. Still, the Tigers won two-of-three on the road, so you have to call it a successful series.
After the game Brad Ausmus engaged in a bit of hat-tipping: “Carrasco was good. as much as you guys want to blame someone in this clubhouse, sometimes you’ve just gotta give them credit.”
Also after the game the Tigers passed the Buck back to Toledo. Farmer’s spot was taken by the much-anticipated Bruce Rondon, of whom I don’t expect much. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Today’s Let’s Start a New Win Streak Lineup:
- Rajai Davis, CF
- Ian Kinsler, 2B
- Miguel Cabrera, 1B
- Victor Martinez, DH
- Yoenis Cespedes, LF

Romine is left to cool in this one. Hopefully he can stay crisp.
