How Was The Game? (June 15, 2013)

Not what you want to see.

Twins 6, Tigers 3

The Tigers were outscored by the Twins on Saturday, leading to a loss, but that isn’t the part of the game that is most concerning. That event was Anibal Sanchez (6-5, 81.2 IP, 2.76 ERA, 2.07 FIP, 3.1 WAR) being removed in the fourth inning, potentially with further shoulder issues. As I write this, it isn’t clear if he was hurt or just out of whack, but he only went 3.2 IP, and had an uncharacteristic 3 K and 4 BB. Hopefully we’ll know more soon, but you hope it’s good news because he has turned himself into one of the game’s best starters. The Tigers got two in the fourth on a Peralta single and one in the 8th on a Fielder ROE, but the Tigers allowed 3 in the 6th and never really seemed in it after that. They’ll try to shake it off and go for the series win Sunday behind the very excellent Doug Fister (5-4, 85 IP, 3.28 ERA, 2.59 FIP, 2.7 WAR).
