I know, Valverde sucked and Marte was worse. But the game should never have gotten to extra innings.
The Tigers were 3-14 with runners in scoring position. They didn’t get the big hit and Valverde blew an otherwise great night for the bullpen.
One bright spot was Prince Fielder flashin some leather. He turned two double plays in the second and third both off the bat of Giambi. The first double play went 3-2-3.
I’m beginning to worry about Valverde and Delmon Young.
Back at it tomorrow at 4:05.
