How Was The Game? (April 18, 2015)

White Sox 12, Tigers 3

After starting 9-1, the Tigers were due for a clunker, but that didn’t make this one any more pleasant, especially because of the way he Sox teed off on Anibal Sanchez (3 GS, 16.1 IP, 7.71 ERA, 5.61 FIP). He wasn’t dominate in the first two innings, but got the job done, and you could argue a bad play in center in the third exacerbated the the the four run 3rd inning. Yet two doubles, a walk, and a bomb in the 4th removed any doubt that Sanchez wasn’t fooling anyone on this day. The Tigers bats drew a tough assignment in Chris Sale and gathered a pair of runs off him in 6 innings, which is better than the average team performs against him. Blaine Hardy was also tagged in relief to turn it into a laugher and everyone just got some work in as the game wound down. The Tigers will still have a shot to win their four straight series on Sunday behind Shane Greene (2 GS, 16 IP, 0.00 ERA, 2.16 FIP).
