How Was The Game? (September 10, 2014)

All wet.

Royals 3, Tigers 0

Rick Porcello (28 GS, 189.2 IP, 3.27 ERA, 3.51 FIP, 3.3 fWAR) came out guns blazing in this one and bullied the Royals for the first couple of innings before allowing a couple of runners to score and ultimately turning in a very nice performance. He went 6.2 innings, punched out seven, allowed seven hits, and hit a batter while setting his team up to sweep the Royals. James Shields have other ideas, keeping the Tigers at bay until the 7th where they threatened but didn’t score and then had to face the teeth of the Royals pen. It didn’t end on a good note, but it was a successful series. The Tigers will take the day off and then welcome the Indians to town behind David Price (30 GS, 219 IP, 3.33 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 5.2 fWAR).

The Moment: Alburquerque comes in and escapes a bases loaded jam with a double play and a strikeout.
