•Tigers are 9-1 in Verlanders last 10 starts vs. Orioles.Hunter starting vs. Verlander no wonder the Tigers are a -265 favorite.
I can't believe they came home and tried to get him. I would have thought a slow roller would easily be enough to score him. That seriously hurts.
There goes possibly our best chance to score a run all game. With Verlander pitching, you never know. Either way, we can't leave runs out there. In a playoff race, they all matter. And against Verlander, that is magnified even more.

I thought he was out actually. Granted, I didn't look very closely. But still.
I'm just frustrated because how often does a slow roller to the right side not EASILY score a run from third? In that sense, it should be 1-0.
Well then screw the umps. Haha. That's annoying.
I'm too lazy to rewind. Which takes laziness to a whole new level. I'm just taking yours and Roch's word for it.
Wow. Verlander is really not on his game these first two innings. Falling behind batters and other un-verlander-like things. We're 0-3 with RISP.
Let's hope no one is on base when Hunter gives up his other two home runs (at least). I'll take my chances with 5 IP 3 ER right now.
Batters seem to think Verlander looks hittable, too. He throws strikes. They swing/they miss.
This year he'd walked 41 and struck out 174 in 175 2/3 innings coming into this game. That 2 walks per nine innings number is about what he put up last year, too. Guy's a killer.
