Tigers 4 Indians 2

The Tigers had chance after chance to blow this game wide open. Only in the first inning did the Tigers go out 1-2-3 but couldn’t get the big hit.

Until the 9th. Hats off to Torii Hunter. He doesn’t walk much but worked a lead-off walk in the 9th that seemed to get things started. “Fear His Awesomeness” followed with his third hard hit ball of the night ( This DH thing might be just what the Dr. ordered?). After Victor flied out, J.D. crushed a three-run homer to give the Tigers the lead for good. I think J.D. was still fuming from the bad third strike call that ended his previous at-bat. Whatever the case, the Tigers needed a big hit, and J.D. delivered.

WTF, Kyle Lobstein? He looked good in his first outing against the Yankees but didn’t strike anybody out. In fact, according to Dan Dickerson and Jim Price, he had only one swing and miss. Yesterday was a different story. He struck out 10 Indians in 5.1 and allowed only two runs. Its amazing how much better a few wins makes me feel.

  1. Well I am glad you feel good. 15 hits and more LOB than I can count…..I want to believe but I just don’t “feel” like a winner yet. I watched bits & pieces of KC & they didn’t quit and won late. We are still the hunter not the hunted….it’s a race.

    • I’m not sure what to make of JMC aka FHA. Can DHing him make this big of a difference? It is hard to believe but he’s 6/10 with 2 HRS this series!!

  2. Had my speech all prepared, about how 12+1 divided by 2 = 6.5 runs per game. And only giving up 1.5 per game, yet 1-1 in the series. And then JD hits a ball harder than I’ve seen in a long time. That is what they call barreling one up… As for all the K’s, Cleveland plain sucks!! As for Miggy, the injuries are still there, and won’t go away by DH’ing.. He simply seems to have a little more focus this series….
