It was the final game of the season, and of Miguel Cabrera’s career.
Eduardo Rodriguez had a really nice outing, and the bullpen nailed it down. But they played with fire the whole game.
Jake Rogers homered twice, Joey Wentz was pretty good, and Alex Lange shut the door on the Halos.
If you’re a weirdo that enjoys bases-on-balls, then you were in heaven tonight ‘cause you saw fourteen of ‘em. The rest of us weren’t that impressed.
It was the best of outings, it was the worst of outcomes.
The pitching wasn’t great and the hitters couldn’t do a lot. At least the new guy got another pair of hits, though, which is nice.
It wasn’t pretty. It was ulcer-inducing. But in the end the bullpen mostly did their job.
Detroit won the first game 4-2, and Cleveland took the second 4-1.
A big three-run home run was the death knell for the Tigers in the finale of a weekend series.
