Detroit Tigers Stink It Up, ALDS Deciding Game 5 Thursday In NY

New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game 4

The Tiger bats took the night off. Two of the balls that they hit hard were both caught by former Tiger centerfielder Curtis Granderson and both kept the Tigers from enjoying a big inning. Rick Porcello wasn’t great, but kept his team in the game. In the 8th inning, the Yankee bats got it going and the Tiger bullpen fell apart. Phil Coke loaded the bases on three straight hits. He was replaced by Al Alburquerque who promptly balked home a run. By the time the inning was over the Yankees had added 6 runs to their lead and the rout was on.
That means the ALDS will head back to New York for Game 5 on Thursday night at 8. The winner of that game will take on the Texas Rangers, who won their divisional series with Tampa this afternoon, 3 games to 1. Doug Fister will start for the Tigers in the deciding 5th game against New York’s Ivan Nova.

The Tigers need to put this one behind them and play a good ball game. Alex Avila still hasn’t had a hit in this series, it’s time for him to get it going. Wilson Betemit has also struck out in nearly every plate appearance. The final score was 10-1 in Game 4. We’ll need to score a few more if the Tigers hope to keep playing beyond Thursday.
