Game 2016.128: Angels at Tigers

I don’t think it’s the Angels; I think it’s the West Coast. Angels, A’s, Mariners, Interleague games with the Dodgers and Giants, it never works out well. The Tigers have the Angels at home, and with their ace on the mound, and with a series sweep in their luggage. And the Angels are 54-73. And…they just scored in the top of the first. Hmm.

Today’s Making the Tribe Sweat Lineup:

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

  1. Nolasco gets you out…. out of the strikezone. Those kind of pitchers eat the Tigers up..Swing swing swing swing sw………runners on Second and third no outs and the first two outs out of the strikezone.McCann one hand throws his bat at a ball.

  2. Of the 5-19 since 2013 I have been at about 11 of them They go exactly like this one so far. Tigers do basically nothing..swing swing swing out of the zone. Or like Miggy..Kinsler..McGeey have done, just lazy swings. Theres a reason Nolasco is 4-11

  3. McCann has no steals in his MLB career…. lets try one here …brilliant managing!
    No run he’s out…then because he doesn’t run Aybar who can run on the double……Ausmus -2
    I was afraid this would get down to Brad in this series….

  4. JD…….andI haven’t seen Victor move like that in YEARS!…..JUp must still have some “juice”…heck ya!

  5. As Maybin goes so go the Tigers!…maybe JUp and Maybin haven’t been here long enough to know about the West Coast jinx!

  6. We were hand wringing about beating the Angels and have been missing the great game JV has pitched.

  7. This situation is why you need to use KRod once in awhile for 4 outs…even if this doesn’t work in the 9th…Ausmus +1

  8. Aybar..great turn on the DP…even though the AL Central might all win today…this is a big win for various reasons…JV….big time…KRod should get 2 saves, your right Tony the ball game was the 8th.

    1. Ole Miss, you have a mean streak within you. Actually it’s a shame the political conventions are done or we might have nominated him for something much better.
