Game 2016.122: Red Sox at Tigers

Well, how about that, Matt Boyd pitched another good one, and the Tigers improbably came back after falling behind 3-1 in the 8th. What kind of odds could we have gotten for betting on that comeback? And with a go-ahead bases-loaded walk at that, after Brad Ausmus oddly pulled both Cabrera and Martinez for pinch-runners. Extra innings would have looked a bit anemic, wouldn’t it have?

Boyd is now 4-0 since the All-Star break, with a 2.10 ERA and a nice 1.019 WHIP. He and tonight’s pitcher, Michael Fulmer, give a lot of hope for the future of the rotation.

The past of the rotation takes the mound for Boston, as Kid Rick Porcello brings a flashy 16-3, 3.30 back to Comerica.

Today’s Lineup:

  1. Kinsler, 2B
  2. Aybar, SS
  3. Cabrera, 1B
  4. V Martinez, DH
  5. JD Martinez, RF
  6. Collins, LF
  7. McGehee, 3B
  8. Saltalamacchia, C
  9. Romine, CF

Another day for Upton as a late-inning pinch-runner.

    Tigers average 3.5 runs for the last month. I guess you can put this one in the books. Rickie will get 14-15 first or second pitch ground outs.
