The supposedly light hitting Padres got to Max for four earned and beat the Tigers 5-1 this afternoon.
Despite striking out 10, Scherzer only lasted five innings then turned it over to the bullpen.
Max didn’t get much help from the offense either.
- Max struck out 10
- Phil Coke pitched a clean, 1-2-3 sixth inning.
- Rajai Davis had two more hits.
- The Amazing Al struck out Chris Denorfia, the only batter he faced, to end the 7th.
- Joba Chamberlain pitched a scoreless 8th striking out 2.
- Miggy was 0-4
- Ajax was 0-3 with three strikeouts
- The Tigers could only push across one run
- Miggy grounded into a double play in the 8th after Torii Hunter lead of with a walk.
- Miggy is struggling, big time
- The Tigers lost the series and finished the road trip 2-3.
The Tigers come home this week to meet the Tribe and the Angels. I hope they can turn around their struggles against the Angels. They need a big home stand.
