The Detroit Tigers are SLOWLY putting things together. Slowly shaking off the rust that has plagued them THROUGHOUT this young season. This was never more apparent than in Wednesday’s match up against the DREADED New York Yankees. Manager Jim Leyland sensed the team needed a bit of a spark, and his subtle adjustments to the lineup seemed to make ALL the difference.
Keep in mind however, that the Yankees did trot out their “B~Team” to do battle. Nonetheless, these are the games that you HAVE to devour if you want to compete for the division, and an eventual playoff spot. After LOSING a embarrassing series to the Cleveland Indians, this is the type of win that could put the Tigers back on track.
The OUTSTANDING play and return to form was a welcomed sight. Max Scherzer pitched a GEM! Going eight SCORELESS innings, allowing only FOUR hits, and recording NINE strikeouts. Maglio Ordonez FINALLY got off the snyd, strokingĀ in a TWO run homer in the third inning. His FIRST of the year. Victor Martinas also made his return to the lineup after a brief stint on the DL. He, along with fellow heavy hitters Cabrera, Boesch, and Avila all contributed to the ten hit outing.
“Do I got something to say? Yeah, just about everyday.”
