Game 2016.82: Tigers at Rays

We’ve won these last three against the Rays in three very different manners. Late inning improbable come back, blowout, pitching duel. With Pelfrey on the mound maybe today will be high scoring back and forth.

This is a day late, but Sanchez is not pitching his way back into the rotation.

The odd lineup frustrates me, but I know you gotta give 27 year old professional athletes a rest from their 3 hour a day jobs from time to time. It’s ridiculous, but I agree with the historical results.

1. Kinsler, 2B

2. Iglesias, SS

3. Cabrera, 1B

4. Martinez V, DH

5. Castellanos, 3B

6. Upton, LF

7. Moya, RF

8. McCann, C

9. Romine, CF

    6 innings 1 run, 2 infield hits and 1 BEAT DA SHIFT. With a little help from Moya, the Tigers HAVE to pull this one out.

    Brad may be pushing his luck. Hope some one is ready to come in if Pelfrey gets in trouble.

    Apparently this game is meaningless to Brad (with the Indians losing). The pen is just starting to get loose.

      CLE have Tom Gorzelanny on their roster, he pitched today, and gave up 7 ER (on 4 H, 3 BB’s) in 1/3 of an inning

      how about J-UP?!

    Thanks Brad! What are the chances of them not scoring like the Tigers did in the first. Brad is even keeled, as Big Al said, he makes the same mistakes over and over again. Maybe Bruce can get 3 K’s like archer did. Forgot there was one out good job by Bruce.

    Everyday Ian baby! Greetings from √∂stresund, Sweden. Listening to the game and watch Iceland v. France in soccer. All the Iceland players last name ends in “sson.” Very cool!

    Indians are being massacred by the Jays. Can this win set up the 3 games with the Tribe?

    Perhaps FLA. The Indians pound it out, while this Tiger team has heart and spirit headed by Kinsler. Let’s see what they can do with that mojo at the Jake. Meanwhile a 19 inning game messes you up along with a 17-1 thumping the next day!

    Also, did you know the 1968 Tigers only had a. 235 team batting average? They did have a lot of heart (and some pitching). Can these 2016 come back kids do it?

    In a very rare occurrance Victor actually runs hard , for him anyway, and gets a big RBI on a FC.instead of a DP…see he is capable of playing hard…he just doesn’t and its not like Brad will say anything..oh and thanks to the Rays for basically not pitching to Miggy when Mighy is taking a few games off, effort wise anyway…..got on 3 times…..he better frickin show up in the Indian series…
    The whole team better show up in the Indian series!!!

    In Cleveland we need to get into their ball pen soon and often. The Blue Jays have left the tribe ball pen in the same shape that Sherman left Atlanta. Today Gorzo (we Tiger fans remember him fondly) gave up 7 runs in one inning. They are hurting, apply more pain.

      Gorzo gave up a 7 spot in one inning…..at least he isn’t getting any worse then!
