Doug Fister pitched 8 innings, giving up three earned runs, and came away with his 4th loss of the season. The Tigers could only get him two runs on a 3rd inning Miguel Cabrera two run homer. That’s all the scoring the Tigers could muster.
In his last 3 starts the Tigers have scored only 2 runs.
Alex Avila continues to struggle at the plate going 0-3 with a walk. How long can the Tigers let him hit under .200? After tonight, his average is at .172. I’m not sure the Tigers are doing Avila any favors by letting him go up there and struggle so mightily.
