How Was The Game? (September 7, 2014)

Tigers 6, Giants 1

After two tough losses, the Tigers needed to stop the bleeding ahead of the Royals series and Kyle Lobstein (3 GS, 22.2 IP, 2.78 ERA, 3.61 FIP, 0.3 fWAR) gave them a nice little boost. He gave the Tigers 5.2 innings of one run baseball on four hits and two walks, and while he pitched through a little late traffic, he gave the Tigers enough to win. The bats jumped on Hudson in the third inning and then tacked on a few more to increase the cushion and give the bullpen lots of breathing room. The win sets up a showdown Monday through Wednesday with the Royals, giving the Tigers a chance to take the lead with a sweep. Justin Verlander (28 GS, 178 IP, 4.80 ERA, 3.90 ERA, 2.6 fWAR) goes first.
