Could See That Coming a Mile Away

After Miggy Cabrera’s mammoth dinger that would still be going in any other ballpark and Placido Polanco’s rare 3 run shot the Tigers looked as if they were still rolling. With Verlander on the mound it seemed like a sure W. But then the Tigers left 11 runners including squandering a bases loaded 1 out situation in the 5th and couldn’t add on any more runs. Verlander didn’t bring his best stuff but still deserved to win handing the bullpen a 1 run lead in the 6th. Zach Miner came in and held strong but Joel Zumaya couldn’t find the strike zone in the eighth and it cost them as Miguel Tejada continues his ritual of killing the Tigers with the game winning sac fly in the eighth. Tough loss snapping a seven game winning streak but the team played well just couldn’t finish the job.
