Marlins 1 Tigers 0

This was a fitting end to a frustrating offensive season. In game 162 the Tigers were no-hit by Marlins’ pitcher Henderson Alvarez.

Justin Velander looked very good today.  He pitched 6 complete, striking out 10, walking 1, allowing 3 hits and no runs.

Fister and Porcello pitched 1 solid inning each in relief.

The good news is that the Tigers pitching looks ready for a long post season run.  The bad news, I sound like a broken record, is the offense.

With today’s 0 run output, the Tigers have scored 3 runs in three games against the Marlins and 11 runs in six games on the final road trip.  11 runs in 6 games, less than 2 runs per game.  That’s not going to get it done.

Congratulations to Henderson Alvarez.

Let’s hope the Tigers can find some offense in the post season.
