Game 30 Recap

After sweeping the Yankees and winning 8 of 10, the Tigers were flying high heading into Minnesota. Tonight's performance burst that bubble. Now this isn't necessarily a setback for Armando Galarraga. He pitched as well as you could ask a #5 pitcher to pitch. It didn't help that Aquilino Lopez completely blew up tonight as well. Lopez gave up 4 runs on 6 hits, while only managing to get one out in the 7th. He had only given up 1 run on 13 hits in 17 inning pitched so far this season. So I'll chalk up tonight as just one of those games that happen when you play 162 in a year. And to be honest after the 4 run 7th I switched over to Game 6 of the Hawks-Celtics. Say what you will about the Pistons, but at least the switch stayed on and they beat the Sixers. While the Pistons are opening their 2nd round series tomorrow, the Celtics will be playing a 7th game on Sunday to try and get past an 8th seed.

Tigers 1 Twins 11
W: Hernandez (4-1)
L: Galarraga (2-1)
