Sunday’s lineup: Tigers at Rays

A little bit of a Sunday lineup against Alex Cobb. Brennan Boesch, 1-for-3 with a double off Cobb from last year, sits in favor of Don Kelly. Ryan Raburn starts at second base, while Ramon Santiago gives Jhonny Peralta a day off at shortstop. Still no start for Danny Worth, who hasn’t had a plate appearance since June 15.

Does the outcome of this game depend on whether good Alex or bad Alex pitches for Tampa Bay??

Pingback: Jhonny Peralta (Tigers) —

why is kelly and raburn playing over boesch…?

Boesch latst 10 games: 176
Raburn: 321. He is instead of Worth not Boesch on the field
Kelly:231. Kelly even with his bad routes is far better with a glove.

Top of the 4th. Make them pay.

Top of the 5th. Come on give Smyly some runs!!

Top of the 6th. Take back the lead.

Bottom of the 6th. Put up a zero.

Tigers win!! Tigers win!! Take the series from the Rays. Now it is back home where we have been 17-18 so far this season. How do we become the Comerica Bullies?? We need to dominate at home.
