The Tigers look to get a split of the first two games in San Francisco. They’ll need a strong showing from Doug Fister and for the offense to wake up before the ninth inning with the game long out of reach (though if you asked Delmon Young, he’d tell you offense wasn’t the problem). At least Jhonny Peralta showed signs of life with a late homerun? ?
If the Tigers can take game 2, the buttkicking in game 1 will be nothing more than a distant memory. Right? Right!
