The Tigers have a scheduled day off on Thursday. For the first 8 innings today, it looked like they were taking today's game off. They couldn't hit when it counted, couldn't play defense (Raburn should donate his glove to someone who might learn how to use it), and didn't pitch very well. The Orioles, who own the worst record in baseball pounded Tiger starter Doug Fister for 8 runs. Finally, in the 9th inning, the Tigers showed some signs of life.
