Tigers Crushed by Angels

Tonight was probably the least enjoyable game of the year to watch and I don't feel like writing much. Here are some quick notes on their 13-4 loss:
  • Bonderman had absolutely nothing tonight and gave up 11 runs in 2 1/3 innings. His ERA rose from 3.69 to 4.33. That about explains it all.
  • Ryan Raburn played in place of Craig Monroe today and went 2 for 4 to raise his batting average to .387 in 31 at bats. I hope he continues to get regular at bats.
  • Curtis Granderson got his 17th triple and moved closer to 20-20-20-20. He also has 29 doubles, 16 homers and 13 steals. Only 2 other players in the history of baseball have reached the quadruple 20: Willie Mays in 1957 and Frank "Wildfire" Schulte in 1911.
  • The Indians lost 4-1 to the Twins today so the Tigers are still in first despite their horrible 3-8 stretch.
