Whatever Zach Grienke is to Tiger bats, Kyle Davies is the polar opposite. Davies was rung up for 8 runs (though 3 were unearned) and 10 hits this afternoon. Just slightly worse then the 7 runs and 8 hits he gave up a little over a month ago when he faced the Tigers. When Polanco goes yard on you, then you know you got pwned, as the kids would say.
The benefactor of the offense was Rick Porcello, who rolled to his team leading 6th win of the season. Porcello gave up two runs on four hits in a nice easy 6 inning 82 pitch performance. Seay, Zumaya, and Rodney closed out the remainder of the game without issue to wrap up the game and the series victory for the Tigers. Onward to Baltimore and hope of a smooth Galarraga start
