Fire Brad Aumus.
8th inning, Joba & Soria, giving up 5+ runs, Tigers lose.
What happened to Hardy, leaving Anibal in, or bringing in Joe Nathan?
Miggy says it all:
(P.s: Look who lurks right behind him in this gif...)
We need to get this going earlier than usual. The sports misery that is the fall of 2014 continues. Bullpen cannot get outs. Ever. Ever.
Chen takes on Verlander today. First pitch is supposed to be at 1207. Hopefully the 'Gers can even up the series today.
Well it's playoff time, here's tonight's pitching matchup.
- Max Scherzer
- 18-5, 220.1 IP and a 3.15 ERA
- FIP: 3.12
- K/9: 10.29
- Chris Tillman
- 13-6, 207.1 IP and a 3.34 ERA
- FIP: 4.01
- K/9: 6.51
After a horrific start to the season Tillman has really come on during the 2nd half to become Baltimore's pseudo Ace.
Living in Baltimore this is sort of a dream come true for me, hopefully the Tigers have a good showing here and take a split back home to Comerica with them. I'm heading over to Camden in about 20 minutes but here's a gamethread in case anyone wanted it. EAT EM UP!
EDIT: Posting starting lineups here too
|1.||I. Kinsler, 2B||N. Markakis, RF|
|2.||T. Hunter, RF||A. De Aza, LF|
|3.||M. Cabrera, 1B||A. Jones, CF|
|4.||V. Martinez, DH||N. Cruz, DH|
|5.||J. Martinez, LF||S. Pearce, 1B|
|6.||A. Avila, C||J. Hardy, SS|
|7.||N. Castellanos, 3B||R. Flaherty, 3B|
|8.||A. Romine, SS||N. Hundley, C|
|9.||R. Davis, CF||J. Schoop, 2B|
David Price showed up ready to dominate and Ian Kinsler helped the Tigers secure the Central Division Crown.
Not an easy task against the pesky Twins, with a tough Gibson matching Price seemingly pitch-for-pitch.
David Price and Ian Kinsler trades paid off big today!!! This team is not perfect, but I like their chances to finally win another World Series this year.
Back to back to back to back AL Central division champions! Could this finally be the year they get it done? GO TIGERS!
