How Was The Game (June 4, 2014)

Blech…

Blue Jays 8, Tigers 2

It was another fine start for Rick Porcello (11 GS, 70.2 IP, 3.69 ERA, 3.98 FIP, 1.0 fWAR) who allowed a home run to the second batter of the game and didn’t get into any trouble again until he allowed a two run double in the 6th. He was getting easy outs all night in between and got four outs after the double to finish with 7 innings, 6 hits, 3 runs, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts against a very strong Blue Jays lineup. He had some help from Cabrera and Kinsler who each launched solo shots, but the Tigers failed to capitalize on two bases loaded scoring chances and the Blue Jays added on against the pen with some magnitude.The Tigers will work to avoid the sweep on Thursday with Justin Verlander (12 GS, 79 IP, 3.99 ERA, 3.49 FIP, 1.7 fWAR) taking the ball.

The Moment: Cabrera swats a no doubt bomb in the first.
