Game 2015.90: Orioles at Tigers

Good all around win last night. Sanchez was okay, don’t let the final line fool you. He gave up 10 H+W and benefited from a 1-14 RISP day by the Os. The Tigers only had 4 ABs with RISP, but when you hit 3 HRs, you’re gonna score a lot of runs.

Tillman v. Price Tonight.

Tigers Lineup:

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B (4-for-18, double, HR, 2 walks, 2 K’s)
  2. Yoenis Cespedes, LF (1-for-8, 3 K’s)
  3. Victor Martinez, DH (5-for-12, double, HR, 2 K’s)
  4. J.D. Martinez, RF (1-for-5, HR)
  5. Nick Castellanos, 3B (1-for-5)
  6. Alex Avila, 1B (1-for-8, HR, 3 K’s)
  7. James McCann, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, SS (2-for-9, double, 2 K’s)
  9. Anthony Gose, CF (6-for-12, double, triple, 5 K’s)

    Ausmus is doing to Marte the same thing Leyland used to do to youngsters. Bring them up and let them sit!. He came up had a good first game…PH once hit a RBI Sac…thats about it..after watching Castallanos brutal playing of third there certainly is room for a start there..plus he is supposed to be able to play first. Lets see we are batting .198 and .133 there…..Brad maybe the kid can hit a RH pitcher better than .198 with 2 RBI ….

    Tillman is struggling so JD leaves the zone for an easy pop ouy…Casty leaves the strike zone constantly and easy fly ball out three against a crappy pitcher. All the trades in the world won’t fix……swing swing swing!!!!!

    Tillman has a 6 ERA because no one swings at this crap. After the game the Tigers will tip their cap to a guy who has thrown 25% strikes today….11 straight outs…8 out of the zone…..Swing batter batter…SWING!!!!

      @Coleman: Probably what a lot of the old O’s fans are thinking too —-“Boy, that guy sure looks like our old Brooksie”.

      Yeah, pretty pathetic. And Kins with the only hit.
      What I wanna know —–what’s Ian Krol doing warming up? Ausmus ISN’T going to bring him in for the 9th, IS he?

    What a waste of a Price start these guys are.

    Krol = 1 pitch only —-that’s good. But now Rondon? What’s wrong with Feliz? Are we determined to tag David with a loss here?

    Tough play, but Gose should’ve had that. I see 2 more runs coming if he sticks with Rondon.

    Hey Rondon…try what Tillman does. Don’t throw any strikes….oh thats right other teams don’t swing at that crap…..my bad!

    Now we’ll score 2 in bottom 9th = night over.
    Price must be sitting in dugout thinking, “Let’s see now —-which team, which team should I ……?”

    PH Gates Davis goes for 3 in a row in same spot out of the zone, then Cespedes does almost same thing.
    Kinsler saves us from further embarrassment by getting that lone hit, but rest of Tigers’ effort really too bad for David, with his quality performance wasted.
