Well, it was a good run. The Tigers had not been shut out for 158 consecutive games. Amazing to think that nearly an entire 162-game season passed between being shut out. Actually, more than a calendar year, too. Detroit was shut out by Chicago, 5-0, on July 16, 2011. Wow.

Well there's not much to write about this game. The Angels took Jacob Turner to the wood shed pretty early. The first four batters of the game all scored. Turner allowed three more runs in the second. His line for the game: 2 IP, 6 hits, 3 HR, 2 walks. Duane Below was temporarily better then not.

Meanwhile the Tigers were barely avoiding being no hit.

There's really no sense of dwelling on it. Not in recap form, nor in grinding your teeth. Just an ugly, ugly game.

For that, 3 ROARS and player of the game voting are both canceled. You can write in your candidates. Mine would be Brayan Villarreal, for going 1 2/3 innings and allowing just one hit. But following a 13-0 game, I am awarding nothing to anyone. I chide you, sirs, for forcing me to watch that.






Quintin Berry had a nice game and was nicely rewarded.
