Horrible. Freeway Ricky was a nightmare. He started off bad and got worse. I’m never an apologist for the offense but they never had a chance. The defense was no help but this was the worst I’ve seen Ricky pitch in a long time. There were some hits off of good pitches but he still got hit hard.
A contending team just cannot have this kind of inconsistency throughout the lineup. The offense is very streaky and the starting pitching has become the same way. The Tigers have the last three Cy Young winners and they can’t count on any of them every fifth day.
I’m pissed and I’m beginning to hate them again.
