Detroit Sports and stuff

My ranting of sports, life, and whatever I feel like...but mostly sports. Now in the un-daily variety.

Baked Zito, anybody?

Well, in case you haven't heard (and my last post did not tip you off of the result), the Tigers defeated the Yankees in game 4 of the ALDS, 8-3, and moved to the American League Championship Series (ALCS) against the Oakland Atheletics.

Game one was tonight, and once again, the story was the Tiger's pitching. It wasn't out-and-out shut 'em down pitching, like Kenny Rogers and Jeremy Bonderman put together the last two outings, but Nate Robertson did just enough to keep himself out of trouble, and get the victory, as the Tigers beat the A's 5-1. Oakland was 0-11 with runners in scoring postion, and they pushed a run across via a groundout to short, and Detroit's offense jumped on Oakland starting pitcher Barry Zito early, amassing all 5 runs in the 3 2/3 innings that Zito was around for. The star of the show was Brandon Inge, who was 3-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI, and a walk. Plus, his trademark excellent defense. Game 2 is tomorrow night, and hopefully we can keep the motown show going...

It was the cover of our sports page that they won the 2nd game. That's amusing to us. Oh - and how are you liking your weather? It's 70 degrees and beautiful here. *evil grin*

Just so you know - they actually went 0-13 in scoring postion, but all that mattered was o-fer
