Tigers 2 Mariners 9
Another game I attend, another loss. Of the Tigers 12 losses I have been in the stands for 5 of them. Which means two things: I am a jinx if you believe in such things, and a majority of the Tigers losses have been at home. Neither are good things. As for the game, it's not like Seattle pitcher Cha Seung Baek was over powering, he only had four strikeouts. It's just that after the first two innings everytime the Tigers made contact it was a ground ball or hit at someone. On the other hand every pitch Nate Robertson threw was hit hard somewhere where the Tigers weren't. Nate gave up 10 hits and six runs and couldn't escape the 5th inning. Baek just picked one hell of a day to pitch probably the best game of his career and pick up his first complete game. Even Jim Leyland threw in the towel, putting in Neifi Perez in the 7th in the hopes of having a full squad for tomorrow afternoon's game.
Curtis Granderson. after his lead-off home run, it was all downhill from there.
Nate Robertson. With the opposing pitcher throwing the game of his life, Nate pitched his worst of the season.
The Eulgoogoolizer Watch:
Eulogio picked up his 4th win of the year; allowing one run on two hits, while striking out 8. All this while Andrew Miller joined the team in Erie. Which was expected at some point this year, yet adds another starter to Erie. Hmmm....
Status: One foot in the Erie clubhouse, one foot pointed northwest.
