The Tigers swept the weekend series with the Royals. They got good starting pitching and the offense exploded, scoring 26 runs in three games.
I really like this new look offense. I know it’s early but we really aren’t seeing the huge swings like we have the last few years. The ability to, as Nebraska says, getem on, getem over and getem in is nice to watch.
Ok, so I have to complain a little. JV got the win but I don’t like the three earned runs surrendered in seven innings. Extrapolated over nine innings, that’s a 3.86 ERA, which is good, but not for Justin Verlander.
- The offense is smokin balls!, Davis, Hunter and Romine each had three hits. Could Romine be the solution at short? He looks like it. Again, it’s early.
- Hunter and Romine had three RBIs each and Miggy had two.
- Castellanos had a home run on his only hit. I like what I see so far out of Castellanos but I’d like to see his average over .250.
- 16 hits
- No errors.
- The Amazing Al gave up a run on two hits in the ninth.
- OK, I’m nitpicking, but the three runs given up by JV I’m classifying as not good.
- Nothing ugly most of this series
Houston comes to Comerica tonight with Max on the hill.
