Tigers 5 White Sox 1

Another good effort today by the Tigers.  They swept a short two game series from the White Sox via their 5-1 victory in the Windy City this afternoon.

The Good:

  • The pitching.  Max lasted “only” six innings but he kept the Sox scoreless, striking out seven and walking three.
  • Five runs should be enough to win most games.
  • Bryan Holaday continues to come up big at the plate.  He was 1-3 with 2 RBIs.
  • Victor is still raking.  He drove in two and went 1-3
  • AJax had three walks.  Can you imagine what his numbers will be if he walks 100 times this season.
  • The Amazing Al and Joba were smokin balls out of the pen.

The Bad:

  • Hunter, Cabrera and Castellanos each struck out twice.
  • Evan Reed allowed a run in the ninth.

The Ugly:

  • The Tigers, as a team, struck out 10 times this afternoon.  I hate strike outs almost as much as GIDP.

Does it seem like there are a lot of two game series this year?

Off to Kansas City.

  1. Pitching, Pitching, Pitching. We haven’t hit a home run since?… I agree Joba is looking like a bargain so far. In fact all of the off-season moves have generally been acceptable… Good month considering the terrible schedule and no Miggy. Big series against KC coming up.

  2. I refuse to be scared about Miggy (someone # me when it’s time) Glad we got this one in……..interested to see our starter against Houston…….two starts and then long relief?
