Laird back in lineup

Gerald Laird’s back spasms eased up quite a bit thanks to some serious treatment during the game last night, enough that he’s back in the lineup for today’s series finale against the Astros. He’s part of a heavily right-handed lineup to face Astros starter Russ Ortiz, who’s giving up a .302 batting average to right-handed hitters this season compared to .215 versus left-handed batters.

THE HOT HOT HITTING TIGERS. TWO DOUBLE PLAY BALLS – OUSTANDING. IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG DAY.

4TH inning game over. No way Tigers get enough runs to come back from a 2-0 deficeit. Again they are impatient and unimpressive. They are going to get swept. No I am not optimistic about this game.

Polanco hit again. Brawl in the next chance?

Binge did it again

Valverde BS: 4

Rodney: 0
