How Was The Game? (April 12, 2015)

Offensive.

Tigers 8, Indians 5

It didn’t take long for the Tigers to jump on T.J. House. In fact, they had three runs before he faced the fourth batter and he didn’t survive the second inning. Miguel Cabrera led the way with a walk, a single, a double, and two home runs, but Davis, Kinsler, and JD Martinez were all on base three teams in the club’s eight run effort. Kyle Lobstein (1 GS, 5 IP, 5.40 ERA, 2.90 FIP) wasn’t a world beater but he hung around and gave up three runs in in five innings of work, which isn’t bad for a number six starter facing a good offense. Angel Nesbitt had a pair of solid innings, giving way to a rough one from Blaine Hardy, who passed the game off to Joakim Soria who protected a three run lead. The win pushes the club to 6-0 on the young season and they’ll head to Pittsburgh Monday behind Anibal Sanchez (1 GS, 6.2 IP, 0.00 ERA, 2.00 FIP, 0.3 fWAR).

The Moment: A baseball needs Tylenol after a run-in with Cabrera.
