Game 2016.102: Red Sox at Tigers

The Tigers got started early yesterday, only to be Pelfried shortly thereafter. But the bats came through again and the bullpen held it together just enough to eek out a win and guaranty a series victory. A sweep would be icing on the cake, but I like our chances with the pitching matchup.

      What I like about Miggy’s recent work is the power to right is back.

    Brad..+1 using Wilson to pitch to three tough lefties in the ninth..I would have sent Frankie out there.
    Enjoy the off day tomorrow. This takes some sting away from that split with the othet Sox team….nice pitching this series…timely hitting….4.5 and closing!!…
    Miggy, Victor warming up, JD, Zim, Norris coming in….good days ahead , boys!….

      KRod was not available. Personal matter they say. Still a very god job by the pen for the whole series, save Alex Wilson last night (not all his fault either)

      Someone will pick him up. He can play all 9 spots well on D…thats worth something.

      He went 3-for-5 with a triple and 2 RBI his last game, that’s not a bad way to go out.

    Rumor has it that Ichario is on the block…perhaps that will make room for Donkel?
