The Tigers were able to win their sixth straight game despite not getting a quality start from Anibal Sanchez.
Sanchez lasted 5.1 innings, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits. He struck out 5 and walked 1.
One thing that I’ve really like about the Tigers lately, is that they have scored early, during the first three innings of the game. It might be a hangover from the hockey season, but scoring first / early, seems to give the game a better feel than falling behind early.
On another note, Tigers, third base coach, Dave Clark, is trying to unseat Tom Brookens as the worst third base coach in baseball history. During the last two games, Clark has gotten runners thrown out at the plate by 30+ feet. It hasn’t cost the Tigers a game yet, but I don’t like to play with fire.
