When the highlight of the game is seeing a couple comedians dressed up as Kansas City Royals -- or were some Royals dressed up as comedians? -- then your team is having a pretty bad night.

Apparently the Tigers used up all their runs on Thursday night. Or maybe they left their bats in Detroit. Or maybe ... well, fill in the rest of this paragraph with your favorite "cold bats" cliche: ________________.

One swing by Brennan Boesch that landed 400 feet later beyond the wall in right field for all three runs pretty much wraps up the highlight reel for the Tigers in this one. I guess you could be charitable and throw in a clip of Austin Jackson running down yet another fly ball.

Max Scherzer is averaging 8.5 strikeouts a game for his past two games. Of course he had 14 strikeouts his last start. So that means he had ... give me a second:

(14 + x ) / 2 = 8.5

* 2 *2

14 + x = 17

-14 - 14

x= 3

three strikeouts on Friday night! I guess I could have just checked the box score for that.

He also gave up nine hits. Which seems like a lot considering he didn't make it out of the sixth inning. Or maybe that's why he didn't make it out of the sixth.

Ryan Perry didn't help matters. He allowed three more runners in today -- two his own -- making it a fourth consecutive game of at least a run scoring.

And well, that's all I got.

Better luck next time!
