Game 5 Recap

If you told me the Tigers would out hit the White Sox 8-3 and only have 3 strikeouts, I would think you would be talking about a game the Tigers won. But as we know that's not the case. In hindsight it could have been a lot worse with the 8 walks Dontrelle Willis and Zach Miner issued. In the 4th and 5th Willis induced double plays to get him out of the jam. In the 6th it came around to bite him with 3 runs coming in to score. As for the bats, well it was pretty much Brandon Inge or nothing. Inge was 2 for 3 driving in all 3 Tiger runs. When your 2 through 6 hitters combine to go 3 for 19 a win is not likely. The Tiger look to Justin Verlander tomorrow to try and be the stopper and get thier first win before heading into Boston.

The better half is on spring break (she's a teacher not a student), so we'll be up in Michigan visiting family and finalizing wedding stuff. Don't know how much posting time I'll have so my next post will probably be about a week from now
