and the Nebraskadamus prophecy unfulfilled. The Tigers fell to the Pirates 5-4 for their first loss of the 2015 season.
Anibal was not good. He gave up 5 runs in 6.3 but the offense nearly made a top of the ninth comeback to bail him out.
If not for a 1 pitch, rally killing at bat, by Nick Castellanos that resulted in a double play, the Tigers may have forced extra innings. That would have been no guarantee of a better outcome given the bullpen but hope does spring eternal.
I won’t whine too much about being 6-1 but it would be nice to get a win in Pittsburgh. It seem like the Tigers never play well there.
