The Tigers won the series finale and took two out of three from the Mariners with a big 5-4 win this afternoon.
Anibal Sanchez didn’t pitch great, but well enough to give the bullpen a bit of break. He lasted 6.1 innings, allowing four runs, three earned on five hits. I guess it qualifies as a quality starts but his walks were high, five, and he continues to give up home runs. However, given the starts they got from Ryan and Simon and the way the offense is to click, this looked like a gym.
What is the story with Jose Iglesias wearing his sunglasses on his hat instead of over his eyes. He made one error and almost made another one. With the struggles the pitching staff is having the last thing they need is to have to throw extra pitches and get extra outs. If it’s sunny enough to get your sunglasses out why not put them over your eyes?
Off to Minnesota.
