Twins 12, Tigers 4
Well, folks. I’m not going to sugarcoat it. This wasn’t pleasant. Buck Farmer (2 GS, 6.1 IP, 15.63 ERA, 5.34 FIP, 0.0 fWAR) got rocked and the offense wasn’t able to meet the herculean task of overcoming it. Kyle Lobstein made his MLB debut in relief, and while he wasn’t great or anything, he ate innings like he was starving, which means the Tigers bullpen will be plenty rested to support Justin Verlander (25 GS, 158.2 IP, 4.76 ERA, 4.07 FIP, 2.0 fWAR) in game two of the series. Eh, let’s just not talk about this one and pretend it was some type of weird scrimmage.
The Moment: No one got hurt?
