The A’s tied the series tonight courtesy of a 1-0 win handing the Tigers their 13th shutout of the season.
There was nothing new to see here. The Tigers got tremendous pitching and no offense.
I was listening to the post game show on the radio and Dan Dickerson said that the Tigers have scored in only 5 of their last 54 innings going back to the last week of the season.
Miguel Cabrera has carried this team for years. Now he’s hurt and there is nobody there to pick him up.
Austin Jackson was embarrassing. He went 0-4 with 4 strikeouts. He took fast balls down the middle and then swung at every other piece of garbage Sonny Gray threw to him.
Torii Hunter was 0-4 with 2 Ks.
Prince Fielder was 0-4.
In fact, the Tigers only managed 4 hits. Cabrera had one, DK had 2 and Iggy had the other one.
Speaking of DK, he got the start in left tonight. I wonder if Puppet Master, Jim Leyland, read last night’s game post. 🙂
The pitching left nothing to complain about. The only thing I might have done differently would have been to bring Ricky in after the lead off hit by Cespedes in the 9th. But really, how can I complain about a game where the pitching staff surrendered 1 run and lost. Everything can be second guessed.
Monday is a 1:00 pm start at Comerica Park. The Tigers will need a big start from Sanchez. What’s new?
