Watched the whole series against St Louis and will watch all of the World Series, in spite of having to listen to Tim McCarver. Even though only up 1-0, pounding the Tiger's ace was a big win.
They definitely stunned Detroit last night. They did the same thing by hammering Cliff Lee in 2010. The Rangers never really recovered, and lost a ton of confidence.
Hopefully they can keep the momentum and build on it tonight.
No doubt. I'm sure that Detroit would have been pretty satisfied with a split in these 2 games. We need to put them down 2-0 like we did against the Rangers.
I think a win tonight breaks their back. Im not saying its over if we win, but confidence wise? The Tigers already had their "unbeatable" ace hammered. If they go down 0-2, especially if we run up the score again, thatll be hard to come back from.
cross your fingers, but right now it looks like were in good shape. If you go down the lineup, Pagan is starting to hit, Scutaro is on fire, Sandoval is on fire, Posey is starting to hit, Pence keeps finding ways to drive in runs, despite struggling, Belt is starting to hit, Blanco and Crawford are hitting enough, and playing fantastic defense. And then the pitching finally got their heads out of their butts. Thats 4 straight great starts. Zito, Vogelsong, Cain, Zito. And the pen is locked in right now.
The Tigers looked cold, and way out of sync last night. Lets just hope we dont give them a chance to get their bearings.
