Rays 6 Tigers 3

The Tigers fell to the Rays tonight, 6 to 3, evening the weekend series at one apiece.

The Tigers couldn’t overcome another bad start from Drew Smyly.  Add to the bad starting pitching, two rally killing double plays, and you have a recipe for a loss. That’s exactly what the Tigers got.

I’m a little worried about Miggy.  His batting average is .313, low for what we’ve been accustomed to from him, and he seems to be more streaky this year than in the past.  He’ll have a three or four hit game then go hitless for a few games.  I don’t think the Tigers are seeing the consistency at the plate that we’ve seen in the past.  That being said, he is still one of the best hitters in the game.

Also, Victor left the game in the 8th.  Preliminary reports say that he aggravated a strained back.  Let’s hope he’s not out for too long.

Sanchez is on the hill tomorrow against Chris Archer.

  1. Let’s hope VMart and Miggy both decline the silly HR derby.. Both are injured, though Miggy isn’t disclosing.. He has become a great singles hitter, but his power is diminished, and in my opinion something must be wrong.. Smyly is becoming a problem even if he is the #5.. Don’t look now, the Royals are only 4 out 🙂 Tigers take the next 2 – book it…
