Detroit Tigers Battle Rangers and Rain in ALCS Game One

Detroit Tigers v Texas Rangers - Game One

You had to stay up pretty late to see the end of this one. If you’re a Tiger fan, you didn’t like the final outcome as the Texas Rangers beat the Tigers in ALCS Game 1, 3-2. The Tigers and Rangers both have explosive offensive teams, but after Mother Nature caused both starting pitchers to exit this game early, the scoring came to a halt. Justin Verlander pitched just 4 innings and gave up all three Ranger runs. Ranger starter C.J. Wilson returned to the game after the first rain delay (41 minutes) and that’s when the Tigers finally got to him.
Detroit had scored twice in the top of the 5th and had the bases loaded with two out when the skies opened up again and the tarp was put back on the field. Once the game resumed more than an hour later, Alex Avila grounded out to end the Tiger threat. And that was that. Both team’s bullpens put up zeros the rest of the way. Tiger Game 4 starter Rick Porcello came in to give Detroit two scoreless innings of relief, Phil Coke and Ryan Perry did the rest. Hopefully, the weather will be clearer for Game 2 tonight, and both teams can settle down and play good baseball.
Max Scherzer will get the start on the mound for the Tigers (he pitched a couple innings of relief Thursday) against Derek Holland of the Rangers. First pitch at 7:45 pm. Barring any rainouts, Game 3 will be Tuesday night in Detroit.
