The Tigers insured themselves no worse than a split, and no worse than a 4.5 game lead at the AS break, despite Joe Nathan.
Hmmm, ‘despite Joe Nathan’, I think I’ve written that more than once this year.
I guess I should give Nathan credit for nailing down the save but he made it a lot more ‘interesting’ than it should have been. He threw 27 pitches in the ninth inning and only 13 of them were strikes. In fact, of the five batters he faced, he fell behind 2-0 to three of them.
OK, I’ve complained enough for one post, especially after a Tigers win. But here’s a note to DD, you still need a closer.
