How Was The Game? (May 27, 2014)

Late, but great.

Tigers 6, A’s 5

Max Scherzer (11 GS, 72 IP, 3.00 ERA, 3.12 FIP, 1.7 fWAR) did that thing where he started poorly and then locked in. He allowed five runs, but got much better in the later innings and kept the team in the game long enough to register the tying run. The Tigers got going early in this one with Hunter, Cabrera, and both Martinezes combining for two in the first with Cabrera adding a homer, Avila knocking one in on a double, and Hunter tying it with a blast in the 7th. The tie game would not last as Davis pinch ran for Martinez who walked and advanced on a passed ball and steal before scoring on a fielder’s choice from Jackson. Joba did his job and Nathan did his with an assist from a tumbling Kinsler, sending the Tigers to a win, which was more than a sight for sore eyes. All of a sudden, the Tigers can secure a series split with Anibal Sanchez (7 GS, 35 IP, 2.83 ERA, 2.42 FIP, 1.1 fWAR) going Wednesday.
