Visiting the Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros

7731388676_2435e1151d I got this game on television on May 14. Normally I don’t watch but we might visit a few other teams to see what is going on and what we are facing in the coming weeks. I don’t know much about the teams as I have been out of the loop for a while but lets see what going on.

I wont do the actual batting line up but will keep track of what happens in the innings like I do for the White Sox.

Game belongs to the Tigers by a score of 7 to 2

 

Detroit has three players batting at OVER .300 and its consistent batting. Combine that with solid pitching, throwing  a large number of strikes and it is going to be hard to beat them this year.

Its been interesting to get familiar with the teams and I will do another game soon

Thanks for joining me
