Detroit Tigers Still Tied For First Despite Loss

Rick Porcello pitched good enough to win today’s game, but didn’t get much help from the Tiger hitters or the Detroit bullpen.  When it was over, Seattle beat the Tigers 7-3.  Porcello had blanked the Mariners until the 5th inning  when the struggling Miguel Olivo led off the inning with a solo homer to left.  A couple of hits and a pop-fly that landed between three Tigers put Seattle up 3-2.  Porcello left after 7 innings with his team down by just a run, but the bullpen gave up a pair of two-run homers (one  to Olivo, the other to Justin Smoak) and that was more than the Tigers could overcome.

The Tiger loss comes as the Yankees were blowing out Cleveland again today.  The Tigers and Cleveland remain in a tie for first place in the American League Central. 

The Tigers will play a makeup game against Tampa Bay tomorrow night at Comerica Park before Cleveland comes to town for a three game series.  Phil Coke will be the starting pitcher for Detroit in tomorrow night’s game.  Coke is 1-6 and needs a decent outing to show that he belongs in the starting rotation.  Now would be a good time to have one.
