In the first inning of this weekends Tigers/Mariners series, Detroit scored 7 runs. In the last inning of the series, the Tigers scored 4. In between, Team Tilde got shutout (NINE times now…NINE TIMES), went seventeen innings without scoring a run, and managed a grand total of three runs outside the two bookending big innings. To recap:
- Nate Robertson – Run Support
- Justin Verlander – No Run Support
- Jeremy Bonderman – Meh Run Support
- Zach Miner – Run Support
This is the story of the 2008 Detroit Tigers. They now stand at 24-32, 8 games under .500 (yet again) and, there but by the grace of Tilde, only 6 games out of first place. Next up – three more games on the left coast versus the 2nd place A’s. The Gambler faces off against Rich Harden Monday, some kind of bizarre D-Train/Little Cat HumanAnimalHybrid starts Tuesday against Eveland, and then the bearded one goes up against Duchescherererer to wrap up the west coast swing.
