Well, I expected the loss in the opener. Keuchel, the reigning Cy Young winner, is excellent at home and Pelfrey was less than inspiring in his first start in a Tigers uniform.
However, Pelfrey was able to pitch out of trouble and give the Tigers an excellent chance to win. Unfortunately, the offense couldn’t do anything in Houston.
I know Miggy is a slow starter, but he looks horrible. His bat looks slow.
