The Blue Jays?
The Tigers and Jays really have to start seeing other teams, because this relationship is getting pretty stale.
Well since I managed to miss this game live and most of the replay, these are nothing more than box score observations:
Scott Sizemore, who came into the game just 3-for-18 with no extra-base hits, displaced a ball from the park on the first pitch he saw in the game. He also singled. It was part of a three-run first inning for Detroit that also saw Miguel Cabrera homer.
On the other side of the equation, Tigers starter Armando Galarraga gave up three runs -- all in the third inning -- to give away the tie. I don't know if he's doing anything to impress manager Jim Leyland and GM Dave Dombrowski outside of game situations, but right now you have to wonder if he's doing the most to make the starting rotation decision difficult for the braintrust. Actually, I'm not sure you do have to wonder that. He's clearly not getting results in the games.
The highlight of the game was again young right-hander Jacob Turner, who'll have some pretty nice stories to tell his teammates when he joins his minor-league team this year. He threw two more scoreless, hitless innings in his second "A" game appearance after striking out the side against the Yankees last week.
And the other interesting event -- outfielder Brennan Boesch hit the ball a country mile. Possibly further.
So that was pretty cool at least.
