If my memory serves me correctly, the only two places the Tigers play worse than Seattle are Anaheim and Yankee Stadium, so it was nice to start this road trip off with a win.
Alfredo Simon continues to be a mess. He allowed five runs in five and two thirds Luckily, the bullpen showed up tonight with good performance from Blaine Hardy, Ian Krol and Bruce Rondon.
Everyone got in on the 12 run, 19 hit parade except Ian Kinsler who was an absolute abomination at the plate. He went 0-5 and hit into two double plays.
Don’t look now but Nick Castellanos has started to hit the last few games. He had four hits tonight including a home run,
All-Star J.D. Martinez had three hits and raised his average to .290 with another homer and three more hits. He is basically on Miggy like tear right now. I hope he continues this pace. With JMC on the shelf, the Tigers are going to need it.
Victor seems to finding his form again. At the risk of sending this offense into a tailspin with the my fingers and keyboard, this offense is firing on all cylinders, the only problem is the Tigers only have two starting pitchers. After Price and Sanchez I’m not sure where they turn for the 3-5 starting slots. I guess if they score 5+ runs a game they might be able to squeak by for a while.
Doesn’t it seem like this is 180 degrees opposite of the first two months of the season?
I’ll the take W any way they can get them.
