I’m not tipping my hat to Tanaka or the Yankees bullpen. Sanchez and the Tigers pen pitched fine. The offense has to do something other than bounce into double plays and hit weak fly balls.
Miggy’s last at-bat to lead off the ninth was a microcosm of the Tigers offensive performance this entire series. He took to fastballs down the middle and swung and some piece of garbage for strike three. In fact, the Might Miggy was a one man wrecking crew today. He contributed nothing offensively and couldn’t field McCann’s ground ball cleanly enough to turn two in the eight to keep the game tied.
This team makes me sick. The only two that didn’t have their heads up their respective asses were Gose and J.D. Martinez.
