This was a disappointing home finale to a disappointing 2015 season. The Tigers had a chance to leave the home fans with a good taste in their mouth but instead gave them one last up close and personal look at the cacophony of nonsense they’ve witnessed this entire season.
The game was decided in the second inning when the Twins scored six runs. Only four were earned but that is only because official baseball scoring doesn’t assume a double play on a booted ground ball with a runner on base. Nick Castellanos committed an error on a ball that should have resulted in a double play, Randy Wolf couldn’t pitch around it, and the flood gates were open.
The offense was no help and the home finale was another microcosm of the 2015 season. The Tigers will wrap up the 2015 season on the road. They need one more win to avoid a 90 loss season, Miggy is still chasing his fourth batting title and J.D. needs two more RBIs for 100. (It’s a stretch but I need something to tune in for.)
We shall see.
