lead the Tigers to their 7th consecutive victory and series sweep of the Texas Rangers.
Freeway Ricky, pitched his second career complete game. This time it was a shutout. Ricky is 10-4 on the year with a 3.41 ERA.
The Tigers are running well right now. I know they can’t win out the rest of the season but I’d like to avoid another .333, 30 game run.
It’s off to Houston for three with the Astros.
On another note, if you’ve been reading the comments, you might have noticed trade rumors. In fact, the one most mentioned is with San Diego for Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit. I would like to go on record right now as opposed to this moved. Benoit was already here and Street is too old. Well, I guess I’m wrong on that, Street is only 30 but I’m still against it. Unless the Tigers can Street only for a humpty dumpty. Dirks perhaps? 🙂
