Well, the Tigers pitched well (save for a couple of games) on the road trip but the offense decided to not participate in the games for some reason. I am guessing they just didn’t want Joe Nathan to blow another save…so they would do him a favor and never give him the opportunity. Kind and caring souls, those Tigers teammates of his.
After getting walloped by a Pittsburgh team that has some of its best players on the DL, the Tigers look to regroup at home against…oh, Pittsburgh. Hmmm, at least the Pirates don’t have much of a scouting report on rookie starter Buck Farmer because the guy only has a handful of games against teams outside of the Midwest League this season. So, either he does really well…or he doesn’t (ANALYSIS!)
