Game 2017.61: Tigers at Red Sox

Chris Sale has changed his Sox, but otherwise today is another Verlander-Sale duel.

Hopefully Mikie Mahtook can stay hot, to make up for the Tigers having possibly the worst 3-4 combo in the league right now.

Today’s Lineup:

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

Pitching: Justin Verlander vs Chris Sale

    Beside 3-4..McMendoza is back. So instead of two catchers hitting. .300
    we get one getting 1 hit a week….
    Me I am rooting for a JV shutout…

    Another great start, 1st and 3rd no outs. 2-3-4 hitters can’t even put the ball in play! And of course, 3-4 are locked in stone no matter who’s hot or who’s not.

    And speaking of 3-4, how bad is your team when you have first and third, no outs and 2–3–4 can’t even put their bat on a pitch. ..3Ks…nice gig for $50 mil.

    Same situation as the Tigers, 1st and 3rd no outs. Any Bets?

    Doesn’t seem that hard, 2 runs and about 40 pitches. Not quite like the Tigers.

    Casty came through and Miggy had a productive out, tied. Iggy is the offense.

    3-3 not bad for bottom of 6th except we need the pen to at least hold for a while.

    Earlier tonight I was going to take exception to Coleman’s statement that we have possibly the worse 3-4 combo in baseball. I’m still not sure, but they’ll do until the worst combo comes along.

    Well, we don’t have to worry about facing the Boston closer tonight.

    Well at least the bullpen was razor sharp again today!….bring in Romine!

    Bring in Romine…to pitch…This team is going
    nowhere…signed Capt. Obvious…

    I can’t believe Brad has JWillie warming up! I would let Lettuce pitch before I’d bring my closer into a 11-3 game. Unless, of course they’ve have reservations at a local club they might lose.

    Hey wait..the Sox have 13 hits and 11 runs…how come the Tigers get 13 hits they get 3 runs always……

    If he brings in JWillie in a 11-3 game hes dumber than I know he is…. don’t give me that he hasn’t pitched in awhile BS either. Romine hasn’t pitched in a while either…
