Game 2017.41: Rangers at Tigers

Miggy is back. Sort of. He is DH’ing, which doesn’t always work for everyone. Jumpin’ John Hicks is back, they could have used him.

Alex Avila is hitting 2nd, for the first time ever (he started at cleanup for the first time ever yesterday).

Today’s Lineup:

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  2. Alex Avila, 1B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, DH
  4. JD Martinez, RF
  5. Justin Upton, LF
  6. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  7. Tyler Collins, CF
  8. James McCann, C
  9. Jose Iglesias, SS

Pitching: Justin Verlander vs A.J. Griffin

I predict a Justin-to-Justin win.

    Kinsler is warming up… Didn’t need that hamstring on that one!

    Bases loaded and three crappy AB by the .230 gang… typical of the Tigers.. I guess we should be elated that they scored 1 and got Darvish pitch count up.

    Upton has zero chance of catching that ball. Dives turns it into a triple…. Why?

      Beacauae all of a sudden he can’t hit, and is trying to make up for it with a spectacular catch. I get it.

    UM softball loses to Washington in the Regional finals 4-2. No World Series this year. Good team too.
