The Tigers looked like the team we saw a few weeks ago. They got good starting pitching from Drew Smyly, good work out of the bullpen, and the offense scored six runs.
It is only one game so I’m not getting too excited but it was a nice game to watch after what we’ve seen in the previous 20 games.
- Drew Smyly gave the Tigers a quality start pitching six innings giving up only one earned run.
- Kinlser, Hunter, and Victor went deep.
- Krol, Joba, and Nathan pitched three scoreless innings in relief.
- Nick Castellanos had three hits.
- The defense is still scaring me. Romine had a throwing error leading to an unearned run.
- It doesn’t look like Torii Hunter is taking good routes on balls hit to right field.
- Castellanos wasn’t charged with an error but he could have. He missed a shot that looked like he should have had.
- For once, in a long time, nothing really ugly tonight.
Let’s see if they can follow this win up tomorrow.
