Tigers 2 Pirates 0

After almost two times through the rotation, Shane Greene is the ace of the Tigers staff.  He dispatched the Pirates lineup with the precision and efficiency of a Swiss timepiece. I really wanted him to get a chance to complete the game but I sort of understand the move to bring Victor in.  Speaking of Victor, he doesn’t like right to me.  Anyway, Greene needed only 81 pitches to get through 8 complete, scoreless, innings, a virtual masterpiece, albeit unfinished.

J.D. Martinez, Ian Kinsler, and Jose Iglesias all flashed some leather today and the Tigers got a win in a place where they don’t get many.

The offense left 10 men on base but we can cut them some slack. They scored enough for the W.

It would be nice for a series win tomorrow.

I like 7-1.

  1. With runners on and one out in the 7th & the pitchers spot due in a one run game you put VMart in to PH unless you have ZERO confidence in your pen. No Rondon & Soria moves up one inning and Houston we have a problem in the 7th & 8th . Will not matter whom the closer is if we can’t hold the lead. Scares me…

  2. Someone remind me tomorrow why we let the pitcher lead off the eighth inning with over 90 pitches and a day off Thursday? Something about the pen maybe?
