Daniel Norris’ second start didn’t go as well as his first. In fact, he needed 40 pitches to get out of the first inning. His offense didn’t show today either but that’s another story.
I have tried to defend Brad Ausmus and give him the benefit of the doubt but I am at my end with this team’s base running. This has to be the worst base running team I’ve ever seen an I have seen some abominations. How many double plays and does this team have to hit into? How many line drives have to not get through, with runners taking off, do we have to sit through for something to change? Can’t they at least try sacrificing? Can’t they at least try to move runners over?
Tempers flared in the dugout. Jose Iglesias shoved James McCann after they exchanged words over something apparently regarding defense. I like Iggy but he may need an attitude adjustment.
The Tigers just can’t win three in a row.
