Well, I didn’t see much of this one past the third inning. However, this was pretty good outing from Simon. He lasted eight complete and allowed four earned. Unfortunately, two runs offensively aren’t going to get it done.
The rubber game is this afternoon.
In other news: After hearing rumors that Ron Gardenhire was the next Tigers manager. After announcing Brad Ausmus would be fired after the end of the season. New Tigers GM, “Big” Al Avila has changed his mind. BA is staying.
I will take issue with one thing Big Al said in the video above. How exactly do the Tigers work on base running? Perhaps they should stop.
One more thing, they need a new third base coach. It’s hard to see how anybody other than Tom Brookens could be worse than Dave Clark. The Tigers lead baseball in runners thrown out at home. The only advantage Clark has on Brookens is that Clark gets runners thrown out by 10 feet whereas Brookens got runners thrown out by 30 feet.
