This was a fitting end to a frustrating offensive season. In game 162 the Tigers were no-hit by Marlins’ pitcher Henderson Alvarez.
Justin Velander looked very good today. He pitched 6 complete, striking out 10, walking 1, allowing 3 hits and no runs.
Fister and Porcello pitched 1 solid inning each in relief.
The good news is that the Tigers pitching looks ready for a long post season run. The bad news, I sound like a broken record, is the offense.
With today’s 0 run output, the Tigers have scored 3 runs in three games against the Marlins and 11 runs in six games on the final road trip. 11 runs in 6 games, less than 2 runs per game. That’s not going to get it done.
Congratulations to Henderson Alvarez.
Let’s hope the Tigers can find some offense in the post season.
