Game 33 Recap

Tigers 7 Mariners 3

Very strict web filters, and training sessions at my new job prevented me from listening to the game or following it on a computer. Thank goodness for Sprint Vision, which allowed me to keep tabs on the game through glances on my phone. Jeff Weaver revenge against the Tigers apparently was complete with his World Series victory, as he was hit early and often today. To sum up just how terrible Weaver has been this season, giving up 6 runs in five innings, lowered his ERA. In case you were not aware, this is Magglio's world, we just live in it. Magglio launched a blast to left center that landed a good 2o rows deep. I know he probably won't produce all season at this rate, but he's on pace for a 200 hit, 30 HR, 125+RBI season. He's also on pace to shatter the record for the most doubles hit in a season. The record is 67, Maggs is on pace for 88. Brandon Inge hit his 5 home run of the season and recorded his 4th straight multi-hit game. Placido Polanco picked up 3 hits of his own, ending an 0 for 9 streak in the past two games. Carlos Guillen extended his hit streak to 6 games, and with Craig Monroe not getting a hit, is the Tigers longest. The Tigers start a tough road trip tomorrow, with the next 7 games at Minnesota and Boston.

Tiger Hero:
Mike Rabelo. Picked up his first career multi hit game, triple and RBI today.

Tiger Zero:
The weather. For not being this nice yesterday evening

The Eulgoogoolizer Watch:
Jeremy Bonderman is listed as questionable for his start Sunday vs. Minnesota. Had Eulogio not pitched yesterday, he might be considered to come up for a spot start. Virgil Vasquez is scheduled to start Saturday for Toledo, so he would be the best candidate out of the minors, I would think. Status: Bags not packed for a trip quite yet.

Tigers Record:
W - L
21 - 12
1st Place AL Central (Cleveland 0.5 GB)
