thought for sure Jackson had been Wally Pipp’d by Kelly

Where is everybody? Watching the Wings? Wow, this game is fun so far.

and, some props to Prince. He’s looking much better at 1st base this year.

Watching O´s – Halos. Garcia had 6 innings of no hit

You can hear people in the crowd yelling comments. More Tiger fans there than Houston sounds like to me.

Wow Prince has gotten f’d over twice now by that home plate ump…..he obviously doesnt like Prince for some reason. Both calls extroidinarily bad not close to strikes.

That double by AA was a nice piece of hitting. He looks so much better at the plate when he uses all fields.

12-0. Prince finally gets a hit and rbi. Oh, my. Enjoy the laugher because we don’t get the luxury of watching these very often.

Miggy off the wall twice, unreal

No point risking him for the CG

Has he ever pitched a complete game?

No. It would be the first

17-1 Good grief, I’ve haven’t seen a game like this since……I don’t remember.

Tigers Win! Tigers Win! Bring on the curly fries.Looks like our lefty laggards are starting to warm up more each day. Pitching is astounding, Defense is more than adequate, and everyone was hitting the ball tonight.Kudos first to Miggy,Victor, Alex,
and Torii. Lots to like. but here are my three, the not so obvious things:
1. Tigers score first, and continue to add on runs all the way through the game.
2. Dirks solid catch in one of those crazy corners of Minute Maid.
3. The double play started by Santiago in the bottom of the 8th. was a thing of beauty.
Alex had another great throw out on a steal attempt. It was his best overall game of the year. Ajax is back in the groove. My oh my. what a fantastic rotation we have.
Get the brooms out; we need a total sweep. Rich, are you going to the Nats games?
Good night all.

Yes Greg. Wednesday’s game. Hope we don’t get too much rain. I’ll post my seat location in a couple of days.
