Tigers 8, Indians 6
After dropping four straight earlier this week, the Tigers have now taken two straight from the Cleveland Indians thanks to a nice outing from Kyle Lobstein (3 GS, 18 IP, 3.50 ERA, 3.25 FIP) and a pretty good offensive showing. They got off to a good start thanks to three straight hits and a sac fly to nab two early runs. They added on in the 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 8th to keep the pressure going. Lobstein didn’t dominate, but he held the Indians to three runs in seven innings and while the bullpen allowed three runs, they managed not to go overboard. A big play from Iggy and a Miggy bomb made the final innings fun, setting up David Price (4 GS, 24.2 IP, 3.28 ERA, 2.87 FIP) for a trip to Target Field on Monday.
The Moment: Iglesias does a thing in the 9th inning.
I always feel really fortunate that I got to see Miggy’s 2012-2013 seasons –a once in a baseball-lifetime event. I might be saying the same about Iglesias’ 2015 season, if things keep going the way they are.
