How Was The Game? (September 6, 2014)

Good for the last 8.5 innings?

Giants 5, Tigers 4

This one got off on a bad foot, but then David Price (30 GS, 219 IP, 3.33 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 5.2 fWAR) remembered he was David Price and the offense started slugging home runs and made a game out of it. After a four run first he settled in nicely and went 8.2 innings while allowing just five total runs courtesy of 11 strikeouts and a walk. The bats rallied back early with a two run homer from Cabrera, a solo shot from VMart, and then another solo blast from Miggy. It looked rough early but by the time we got to the 9th inning it was a one run ballgame. Carrera (pinch hitting) grounded out, Avila struck out, and Davis grounded out to end the game with the Tigers coming up short. Kyle Lobstein (2 GS, 17 IP, 3.18 ERA, 3.77 FIP, 0.2 fWAR) gets the Sunday night call.

The Moment: Cabrera strikes back with a two run homer in the first and a solo shot in the 8th.
