Rangers 12, Tigers 2
Rick Porcello (9 GS, 58 IP, 3.88 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 1.1 fWAR) started out well today and a nasty, weird, unfortunate 4th inning broke things open and then he struggled to get back on track over the next two innings, turning in his worst start of the season. Two homers, couple rough walks…I don’t really want to talk about it. The bats didn’t do much aside from a single run early, a single run late, and a couple other threats. Thankfully, we got more Danny Worth on the mound. It was the only redeeming moment and boy was it redeeming even with the run allowed. It’s been a tough week. If you missed this game, watch the 9th inning and call it a day. Justin Verlander (10 GS, 66 IP, 3.55 ERA, 3.19 FIP, 1.7 fWAR) will try to grab the split on Sunday.
The Moment: More Worth!
