It's a good thing that double headers aren't scored in aggregate, because after falling 12-2 in the first game of the day the Tigers would have had a tough time clawing their way out of that hole.
Fortunately a 7-1 victory in the second game means our memories of the day are a lot happier than they would have been.
In short: Rick Porcello got shelled in the opener, though he wasn't alone in teeing up the Sox batters.
Jim Leyland had this to say:
"The pitching was absolutely terrible," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "You can't pitch like that up here.
"I thought Rick's last start was his best stuff since he's come back (from Toledo). Today it looked like the worst. After the first two innings, he lost his control and his stuff. He had nothing after that."
"We kept throwing it in the middle of the plate and they kept whacking it. That pretty much sums up the game."
