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.
