Tigers score first in the bottom of the 1st inning vs Felix. After sweeping the chisox, a win would be great to keep the momentum going. Discuss.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Raburn is having his usual stellar game in the outfield.
So were Mike Hessman, Chris Shelton, and Jack Hanahan. He's a good AAA player and a MLB utility player at best. I can't wrap my head around how he gets the starting nod over Boesch so often.
Sure would've liked to have gotten more than one in the first. Particularly with runners at second and third and nobody out.
Wish they would have gotten a couple more off of Hernandez.
Any chance this game goes all the way? I heard there were tornado warnings in MI.
Looking at the radar it looks like they'll definitely finish. Maybe a short delay at some point but I'd expect nine innings.
Beautiful April in the D evening, I don't anticipate any issues getting the game in, especially if this pitching duel holds up.
most of the state is under a watch till 10 pm but its bright blue skies in metro detroit right now
Inge doesn't really bother me hitting 9th. Granted, he just knocked in two runs to tie the game, but in general I think he is what you want as a 9th hitter...a guy that doesn't have awful at bats and can spark the offense with a good game.
Also, the Tigers are making Felix throw a lot of pitches. Games like this are a lot easier when you get to the bullpen.
Inge strikeout alot thats why hes batting 9th.
Inge just locked up player of the game by doing anything positive let alone a 2 RBI double
I personally like Inge for his defense, i think hes a very underrated third baseman
I think he is a very overrated thirdbasemen.
He has exceptional range, but he also has the ability to take way to many plays off, and makes plays harder than they need to be. I feel he often is overly reliant on his above average arm, and as such it hinders him from being more consistent.
Lets not even get started about his bat.
I do like Phil Coke as a starter...but this game is blerg.
I like him as a starter as well but I'm starting to reconsider. He wasn't very good in the last game either and both were against Seattle, a team with the worst offense in the AL.
He has a 2.25 ERA against teams not Seattle though
Also teams not known for their offense.
He shut out Oakland and Kansas City is 4th in the majors in runs scored
Lets give him another start against a team not named Seattle before we ditch him.
