Game 2015.128: Tigers at Blue Jays

Matt Boyd returns to Toronto, and takes on his former team, as does Anthony Gose. David Price is there, and not doubt will be renewing acquaintances, but we won’t see him pitching this series.

Justin Verlander’s near no-hitter was a tough act to follow, but crafty veteran Randy Wolf did a pretty good job of it. He has now had two good outings, which is probably as much or more than the team expected to get from him this season. Wolf now has a WHIP of 1.143, which is the 2nd lowest among Tiger starters (Verlander now, by the way, has a lower WHIP for the season than David Price did). Wolf says he isn’t yet ready to concede to age.

If Miguel Cabrera gets 5 plate appearances tonight, he will appear in the official batting average leaders list.

In Minor League notes, current Erie pitcher (and former Binghamton pitcher) Michael Fulmer has been named Eastern League Pitcher of the Year. Some hope for the future.

Today’s Where Did the Runs Go?¬†Lineup:

  1. Rajai Davis, LF
  2. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, DH
  4. Victor Martinez, 1B
  5. Julio Martinez, RF
  6. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  7. James McCann, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, SS
  9. Anthony Gose, CF

    The problem,, among others,the Tigers have is when they score a run in the first, they usually think thats enough for the day….
    Lets go Boyd have a good day!

        Thanks for that info. And that’s great, because (barring a no-hitter, actually perfect game from Toronto) that should be a lock!

    Brad says the Damage came from the “Heart of the Lineup”…oh! He was talking about Toronto…I thought he meant the damage in the loss came from his 2-16 “heart of the lineup”….my bad!

    in case anyone is wondering, the Nats have lost the last 4 game Scherzer has started, and his ERA is up to 2.88 after yesterday’s loss to the Marlins.

    Nats are now 6.5 games behind the ‘amazing Mets II’

      Mets have that Cespedes guy, I wish the Tigers could find a guy like that.
