That was actually one of Zimmermann’s better outings last night, but the Tigers had to contend with antics in the field and flailing at the plate. Justin Upton had a particularly rough night. He has been getting a steady diet of off-speed pitches low and away, and can’t seem to either hit them or refrain from swinging at them.
Brad Ausmus isn’t worried: “You ask people around baseball if the Detroit Tigers are going to hit. It will be a unanimous yes. We are going to hit.” Well alrighty then.

Van Man better be sharp, the way the Tigers have been hitting in Houston.
Nick gets a day off after clowning it up at 3rd last night.
