Yikes – an 0-3 start is certainly not the end of the world, but the Fightin’ Tildes need to get their bats swinging properly soon. Certainly, the lack of the Son of Grander is not helping the cause, and The Mig Tilde was out today as well, but I don’t think any of us expected and 0-3 against the Royales With Cheese. The Big Tilde was 1 of 4 today, with his 2nd double of the season, and a strikeout. The Angry Inge hit a solo homer in the 7th off of Zach Grienke to break an eighteen inning scoreless streak for the Tigers.
The Tigers start a set against the South Siders tomorrow afternoon as Nate Robertson fires up the gum time for the first time this season against Jose Contreras. Here’s hoping Nate gets the ship righted.
