Tiger Losing Streak Is Now A Six Pack

Tiger manager Jim Leyland said after today’s 5-4 loss to Cleveland, “We’re just not doing enough things to win.”  No kidding.  The Tigers had a 2-0 lead in the early going and gave it back an inning later.  They took a 3-2 lead in the top of the 8th before

Joaquin Benoit surrendered two runs in the bottom of the 8th.  Benoit also served up the walkoff grand slam to Carlos Santana on Friday night.  Not a good weekend for him.  Miguel Cabrera drove in a run in the top of the 9th to pull the Tigers to within a run, but nobody else could deliver in the clutch.  The Tigers have now lost 6 in a row, and occupy 3rd place in the American League Central Division with a 12-16 record. 

The Tigers limp home to begin a 4-game series with the Yankees tomorrow night.  Perhaps they will elevate their game against the Bronx Bombers.  Justin Verlander is scheduled to pitch in Monday’s matchup with the Evil Empire, he’ll need to be at his best and get some help for a change. 

 As gloomy as things seem right now, it’s nothing a six-game win streak can’t fix.
