They fall to a measly 4 games below .500. Smyly squandered 2 2-run home runs early and Boesch completely misplayed a ball in rightfield. I am literally running out of excuses for this team, and as soon as I have a spark of hope it withers away. We had our best pitchers this series and it looks like we're on the cusp of a 4 game sweep. Granted, Fister has been hurt, but Verlander? Optioning Raburn won't solve all our problems, but the Tigers management has to find something that will.
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
