Tigers 9 Red Sox 2
Oh that felt good. There are few things I despise more than Red Sox fans, and by fans, don't mean people who follow the Red Sox, I mean the obnoxious A-holes who come out of the woodwork in every city that Boston plays...sort of like locusts. Exhibit A: The guy last year who was yelling "1984!" every five minutes. Well even a lopsided score like this rarely shuts them up, but it make me feel better. As for the game, first of all they should put a warning on HDTVs whenever Julian Tavares is pitching. Now I know the reason why he is so angry. I'd be pretty ticked off at life if my face looked like it was a landing strip for bottles of sulfuric acid. His pitching was ugly as well, as the Tigers knocked him around for 8 runs on 10 hits. Andrew Miller bounced back from a shaky start against the Twins to pick up the win in his longest outing as a major leaguer. Miller did walk 4 which is way too many walks to give to a great hitting team like Boston, but only gave up one run thanks to his 6 K's and some fine defense. The most glaring example was Grandy's laser from center field to nail Wily Mo Pena at the plate in the 3rd.
Marcus Thames. The River sent two balls deep tonight. One was to straightaway center for a sac fly, the other was over the left field fence for a grand slam. C-Mo is very, very nervous.
Neifi Perez. He needed stimulants to help him play like that?
