The Score: White Sox 8 – Tigers 4
The Gist: Curtis Granderson hit the second pitch of the game out of the park andâ€¦game over. Edwin Jackson got his usual pittance of support but unlike most of the year he allowed quite a few runs himself. Then the offense went back to sleep, apparently assuming that some of the 20 hits from Saturday night could be used kind of like, I don’t know, rollover minutes.
The View: As Ian says, nothing’s been easy all year for this Tigers team, so why start now? Still, I mean, you know, it’s just, couldn’t they…ah, forget it.
The Quote: “Today was pretty much our offense, which has been mind-boggling.” â€“ Jim Leyland
The Stat: 2 – The number of Brandon Inge errors in this series.
Magic Number: 6
Up Next: Twins @ Tigers
