Game 2 with the Tigers
Jacob Turner has the keys to the office today. Fingers crossed his outing today is better then last time. Brett Lawrie out with a hamstring issue and is listed from day to day.
Jacob’s first pitch is a strike
Top of 1st – Turner made a real mess of that inning but he got out of it, 30 pitches is way to many for a first inning. Tim Anderson with the Sox 1st hit if the day in the home half of the 1st. Melky with a single, Timmy stops at 3rd. Jose Abreu with a single getting Tim home for a 1 to 0 Sox lead. Justin Morneau hit by pitch which loads the pond. **Close of inning Sox 1 and Tigers 0
Jacob with 4 strikeouts, this inning is looking better.
Tigers tie the score at 1 all with a triple to right. Adam Eaton had issues with getting the ball back. 2 errors for the Sox in top of the 3rd. Wild pitch gives the Tigers the lead 2 to 1, RBI single makes it 3 to 1 Tigers, I have no clue how Jacob managed to get out of that one, with the mistakes and all.
It’s a scramble for the office keys, waiting to see who finds them – Hey, Hey, Hey its Matt Albers who found them. Sac Fly takes the tigers lead to 4 to 1.
Dan Jennings is getting the keys from Matt Albers. E – 6 will see the runner safe.
Bottom of 5th and Narvaez with a single, Adam with a walk, runners on the corners, getting the force at 2nd. Abreu with a double getting the run home for a 4 to 2 Tigers lead. Justin with a 3 run homer over the right field fence for a 5 to 4 Sox lead.
Tommy Kahnle got the office keys during the change.
Top of 7th and the whiz kid Carson Fulmer found the office keys. I really like this kid, I think some good things on the way, they just need to not rush him along.
5 all tie in the top of the 7th, Nate Jones to get the office keys from Carson, it was not a great outing for him but the experience will be valuable. 2 run single and its a 7 to 5 Tigers lead.
Jose finding some form and safe at 1st, 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th.
A 5 pitch top of the 8th inning for Zack Duke, bottom of the inning with 2 out and Tyler with a single up the middle. Dioner Navarro up to bat and to enter the game. Avi Garcia in the game for Adam Eaton after he took a hit off his foot.
This game is ova.
Thanks to 3 errors and Jacob having a better but disaster of an outing the boys go down by a score to 7 to 5
Chris Sale in the office tomorrow
