Tigers and Indians square off tonight.
Game one of a three game series in Cleveland.
Fister takes the mound for Detroit
Masterson is on for Cleveland
Anyone know where I can find a stream of the game?
I am surprised by all the empty seats. I guess the Tribe fans aren't feelin' this team
The forecast called for bad weather.
Kipnis diving play just robbed V-Mart of a single and an RBI. Good to see the tigers putting good swings on Masterson so far.
if the tigers strand as many baserunners as they have the past couple series then they'll lose tonight.
OUCH that hurts, never seen a 6'8'' pitcher do the splits while covering first base on a 3-6-1 double play
Game is currently in a rain delay Top 3rd tied 2-2.
I love hour long Rain Delays
that ripped through Metro Detroit earlier causing garages to catch fire in Roseville.
Any word whether it will start back up?
Mario Impemba estimates 9:45 restart time. Any guess on who'll be pitching?
Below vs. Durbin
prolly the internet
Ex Tiger Chad Durbin on the hill for the Indians now... I think the Tigers really come out ahead in this. Get Masterson out of the game after only 2 innings!!!
Yeah, the delay certainly favors the Tigers, but we need to take advantage of it and put some runs on the board.
ball is not carrying at all
Ha, guy who got the foul ball to left had a Heat jersey on. I thought that was illegal in Cleveland
12 up 12 down for Below. Man it'd be nice to put some runs on the board, but if anything Below is saving our bullpen for the rest of the series. Cleveland is on their second reliever.
The Indians are going to win in walk-off fashion.
Indians blow a suicide squeeze in the eighth and the Tigers get out of the inning. To the ninth we go with the score still 2-2.
Please, someone hit the ball.
Holy failed squeeze, Batman...
Good game eh guys?
Soo did anyone else notice how the Brantley put the bat in front of a running Avilia?
Edit: Guess Rod Allen did. There must be something in the air that makes people in Ohio classless d-bags.
Not sure if I agree with not pinch hitting for Santiago with Betemiet (sp) on the bench but if this works I will take the neg.
Edit: Well it didn't work out, and Santiago weakly grounds out to first... now to NOT see a walk off tonight.
if it happens I called it. I sure hope it doesn't though. so many men left on base. Coke is pitching though so that may be happening...
In defense of Leyland in putting Coke in, the lefties have dominated Cleveland tonight. Also if he puts in Valverde people bitch that he has been terrible in non-save situations, and Benoit has struggled as of late.
Also the Leyland haters would have come out the woodwork had Jimmy orchestrated the failed suicide squeeze in the 8th.
Cleqveland fans had no idea what happened on that first foul tip. They were still cheering.
That is a funny crowd they got there in Cleveland tonight. It may be improper to say about the Indians and Chief Wahoo but the natives seem restless
Is the girl on the left supposed to be dancing?
She's been dancing since 10pm... someone got some sugar past bed time..
That girl dancing behind the plate is really starting to piss me off!
That + the Drum makes this the most annoying game of the year...especially if the Tigers end up losing
Don't hate, she is probably a M recruit's little sister. Dancing and texting at the ballpark; good times!
WELCOME BACK AL-AL!! Didn't realize he had been reactivated!
OT what is up with Michael Jordan and the Hitler mustache. I hate that thing.
Geez, that was a late time given, the ball was almost out of his hand! Doesn't matter, he got him!
I want a Kenny Power's "YOU'RE F*ING OUT"
This game is actually getting annoying to watch. I need a sammich.
9 consecutive scoreless innings.
Exciting... in a painfully boring way.
It doesn't seem like the pitching is doing THAT well. it just seems like neither can get consecutive hits.
This game started 6 hours ago! Someone needs to end this soon....
Might have to finish this one tomorrow. Maybe Porcello can win two tomorrow like Wilbur Wood did against the Tribe back in 73. Wilbur was 13-3 after 40 games with the White Sox that season.
May 28, 1973 - Chicago's rubber-armed knuckleballer Wilbur Wood wins the completion of a suspended game‚ allowing 2 hits and an unearned run in 5 innings‚ winning 6-3 on Dick Allen's 3 run homerun in the 21st. Wood then shuts down Cleveland on 4 hits in the regularly scheduled contest. After the White Sox' first 40 games‚ Wood's record is a remarkable 13-3.
Could Fister be used in the bullpen (if necessary) tomorrow? He hardly pitched today..
Ok, Boesch with the lead off walk. Dirks up and he's NOT bunting???
And he grounds into a fielder's choice.
Whoa how the hell did you get to Bolivia? Must've missed something.
