On a cold, nasty, night, at Comerica Park, the Tigers fifth starter, Kyle Lobstein gave them a chance to win. Lobstein gave up only one run in six complete then handed the ball over to the bullpen. No need to say more.
The bullpen, however, isn’t the story of this game or series, the lack of offense is. The Tigers have grounded into seven double plays in two games against the Yankees and 17 for the season, tied with Baltimore for most in the majors. I love double plays when the Tigers turn them but the hate them when the Tigers hit into them. I don’t know, is it good pitching or bad (selfish) hitting?
In any case, 11-3 isn’t that much to cry about.
