How the Tigers won despite losing
Yesterday I got a chance to watch the Tigers play. Even thought they didn’t come away with a win, I did leave there feeling good about what I saw.
The biggest question I had about the Tigers going into the game was what kind of performance Max Scherzer was going to give. Scherzer looked dominant throughout the game, allowing only one run in seven innings while striking out nine.
I know I’ve mentioned it before in my blog, but if Max Scherzer doesn’t get it going, the Tigers are going to have trouble making any sort of a deep run in the playoffs. If yesterday was an example of things to come, then Detroit fans should be quite excited about things to come. No, Scherzer and the Tigers didn’t get the win, but they still were able to come away with a very big positive.
Unfortunately I was not able to sample any of the fine cuisine at Comerica Park, since a stop at MGM Grand Detroit depleted me of my lunch money. Oh well, I’ll be sure to enjoy something at the ballpark next time.
Doug Fister will make his return from the disabled list for the Tigers tomorrow, so hopefully we can get a winning streak going. You know I’ll be watching.
