Game 2: Tigers vs. Braves

Spring Training 001

It’s a very light rain at Joker Marchant Stadium this morning, with a chance of showers during the afternoon. At this point, though, the game against the Braves is still on.

Any regular who didn’t start yesterday is starting today, and any starters from yesterday are pretty much off today. Interestingly, though, it’s Jose Iglesias leading off rather than Austin Jackson, who’s batting sixth. Again, Brad Ausmus doesn’t want anybody reading into his batting orders this early, in part because how long his starters play is going to be determined by at-bats rather than innings. Still, it’s worth noting.

No TV or radio for this game in Detroit. The Braves radio broadcast, however, will be available online at MLB Gameday Audio.

nvrmnd. FOUND IT. gooooo porcello!

a run without a hit, again! i could get used to this!

below hanging things out to dry didn’t go as well as it could….

Sounds like Jason Heyward hit a monster homer to RF, similar to the one in 2010. Since I saw the first one in person, I don’t need to see this one.
Tigers doing well early on with creating runs. This is what I had hoped for.
