Game 14: Angels 6 – Tigers 5

ESPN highlights available here.
The Score: Angels 6 – Tigers 5

The Gist: With the tying and go ahead runs on second and third in the eighth inning, you want Johnny Damon up, right? Of course you do! Well he was but he failed to deliver and the Tigers lost a frustrating 6-5 game to the Angels.

Along the way they managed to make former double-digit ERA owner Scott Kazmir look superhuman (5.2 IP, 2 R, 0 BB 7 K). Rick Porcello, on the other hand, is personifying the sophomore slump. I could go on, but why bother?

The Quote: “What the…” or something like that, probably uttered by Damon after he took a called third to end the eighth inning rally.

The Stat: 10 – The number of pitches Austin Jackson fought off before delivering a key single to keep the eighth inning alive.
