Game 2017.23: White Sox at Tigers

Nick brought his cast iron glove with him to the park yesterday, and kicked away two consecutive double play grounders, for three errors total (he should have had 4, on a ball that was somehow ruled a single). After the game Omar Vizquel consoled him: the great Vizquel himself had a game with 3 errors in which he cost the Indians 7 unearned runs. Yikes. Bad days happen (although it would be nice if Nick could be a little more Vizquel-like on his good days).

Alex Wilson took the loss, unfairly, after giving up only the 2 unearned runs and working his way out of the situation. Jimenez gave up another bomb and isn’t impressing anyone yet.

Today’s Lettucey Lineup:

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  2. Mikie Mahtook, RF
  3. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  4. Victor Martinez, DH
  5. Justin Upton, LF
  6. John Hicks, 1B
  7. James McCann, C
  8. Andrew Romine, CF
  9. Jose Iglesias, SS

Pitching: Michael Fulmer vs Derek Holland

    Let’s hope the team comes to bat today as I don’t want to go below .500. Good to hear and see Ramon today. He always waved to us when he came on the field for warmup. A good ballplayer!

    The entire Tiger Offense goes in the tank.. Way too often.. Bullpen is one thing.. Brad us another…. But the Offense tanks for a good period of time way too often!

    I’m sorry but the chatter between Mario and Gibby tends to drives me nuts. I’m going to have to get a radio and listen to their feed and mute the TV when Gibby is in the booth.

    All of a sudden, JWillie looks like ASanchez.

    …so much for the valiant 9th inning comeback

    ironically, JWilson was about the only reliable relief pitcher in the DET bullpen – guess it must be contagious

    Seems like it may be a very long season. Another decent start wasted.

    It’s a long season.

    And we’re not very good. Neither is anyone else in our division.

    Tigers scored a whole 4 runs, wasted in the loss.. That means no more than 1 or 2 Sunday… Too much effort required, no leadership to get kicked in the behind to get it done. Brad will whine! “that’s baseball”
