How Was The Game? (June 27, 2013)

An opposite way to lose.

Angels 3, Tigers 1

After a homestand that featured the league’s best starting pitching doing a very convincing Padres impersonation, Doug Fister (6-5, 103 IP, 3.50 ERA, 2.82 FIP, 2.9 WAR) returned to form, pitching 7 brilliant innings of 1 run baseball to give the Tigers a very good chance to salvage one in the series. However, the Tigers could only must a single run themselves against the nameless opposing starter and couldn’t cash in on scoring chances in the 8th and 9th innings. With a taxed bullpen, Leyland had to hand the ball to Coke in the 10th, who remained unable to get righties out, resulting in two runs. The Tigers have the best staff and the best offense in baseball, but it wasn’t lined up correctly on this homestand as they dropped 3 straight to the Angels and 6 of 10 overall. They will pack up and head to TB tonight, turning to Max Scherzer (11-0, 103.1 IP, 3.05 ERA, 2.54 FIP, 3.3 WAR) for game one with the Rays.

The Moment: Torii Hunter nearly injures himself during a very comical dive.
