Game 125 Recap

Tigers 2 Indians 1

The homestand starts strong with a victory over Cleveland. Jair Jurrjens looked better this game than he did in his first start. The amazing thing is he had faced all these batters just a week ago, and only allowed one hit. Besides Peralta's home run, Kenny Lofton ans Travis Hafner were the only other Indians to reach base, on two walks a piece. We were also treated to the vintage 2006 7-8-9 inning bullpen combo of Zumaya, Rodney, and Jones, and they pitched just as well as you could have hoped for retiring all 7 batters they faced. A good start for the Tigers...the key will be going out and doing it tomorrow night.

Tiger Hero:
Jair Jurrjens. Only struck out one, but he got everyone out. Huge pitching performance when the Tigers really needed it.

Tiger Zero:
Marcus Thames. Seemed befuddled by Carmona's sinker, and went down swinging twice.

Tigers Record:
W - L
68 - 57
2nd Place AL Central (0.5 GB Cleveland)
