How Was The Game? (May 16, 2015)

Satisfying.

Tigers 4, Cardinals 3

With the rain pouring down, Miguel Cabrera reached 400 home runs in the 1st inning, and then we basically had to wait around for an hour and a half to see if it was going to count. After the rain delay, it took David Price (8 GS, 53 IP, 3.40 ERA, 3.77 FIP) a couple of innings to find his groove, facing 11 hitters in the first two innings and surrendering a pair of solo shots. After that, he settled in nicely, retiring 13 in a row until Jhonny Peralta took him deep in the 6th. Price danced through the 7th, seconds from danger, but managed to avoid disaster. The Tigers added a pair of 3rd inning runs, setting up a even game into extras. The Tigers pushed across a run and then Rajai Davis made an incredible throw to cut down Holliday trying for two. Soria would survive the rest and give the series to the Tigers. Alfredo Simon (7 GS, 44.1 IP, 3.05 ERA, 3.53 FIP) will get the ball Sunday night for the sweep.

The Moment: Davis guns down Holliday in the 10th.
