Tigers Finally Lose
The Tigers 8 game winning streak came to an end today as they got blanked by the Indians 9-0. There is not much you can say about a 9-0 loss except that you can't win them all. Kenny Rogers had his second rough start in a row giving up 5 runs and 6 hits in 4 1/3 innings. Jason Johnson, the pitcher who Rogers replaced in the Tiger rotation, pitched 6 shutout innings to get the win. Johnson was backed by Travis Hafner (two run home run in the first) and Jason Michaels (grand slam in the 8th). Perhaps, the Tigers were looking ahead to the Yankee series beginning tomorrow afternoon. The first game of the series features Jeremy Bonderman versus Randy Johnson.
