Game 16: Tribe Returns the Favor


ESPN highlights available here.

The Gist: Justin Verlander got lit up. Again. This time the Tigers’ 0-3 ace allowed five runs on seven hits in five innings to take the loss. The 11-1 loss to the Indians, leaves the Tigers with a Lions-esque record of 5 and 11. The Tigers had Cleveland starter Fausto Carmona on the ropes in the first inning but couldn’t push across a run.

The Quote: “We let it get out of hand.” Jim Leyland.

The Stat: The prominent number in Zach Miner‘s pitching line from Thursday night: 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER — all in just one inning.
