KEY STAT

5: The Tigers were held to just five hits. After all those days of insane production I guess it was bound to happen again some time.

KEY PLAY

Carlos Pegeuro homered to lead off the seventh for Seattle, giving them a 3-2 lead.

KEY THOUGHTS

I feel like I'm out of practice on this recap thing!

The team has been so hot lately -- and closing in on first place so fast -- that it can make losing so disappointing. But it's nothing really to be concerned about. I know I really shouldn't have to write those words but never underestimate the fans' willingness to jump off a cliff in fear hey?

As we noted, the lineup didn't do a lot in the hits column. No player had more than one and Miguel Cabrera didn't collect any. The Tigers only scored on one single play in the game too, a home run by Victor Martinez. As the baserunners were so unevenly distributed, you won't be surprised to learn the team was just 0-for-3 with RISP

It was a fairly decent day for Brad Penny too. He had another quality start, didn't walk anyone. Hey we'd take today's WHIP of 1.14 out of him more often too.

Well, the Indians lost anyway. By the way isn't it way too early be watching standings? I'll answer that one myself. Yes. Yes it is. But I guess we really do enjoy seeing our team move into first, especially after being eight games out. So I understand that. Just try to remember it's only June and only the minor leagues crown a playoff team at the all-star break.
