A roller coaster.
Astros 10, Tigers 8
I think this just about says it all. Anibal Sanchez (10 GS, 60.1 IP, 6.12 ERA, 4.44 FIP) struggled in the first, got back on track, and was then left in until he broke. The bats did their job to rally back, but they couldn’t prevent runs. You’re okay losing a game in which the starter didn’t perform well, but when get yourself to a 7-3 lead in the 6th, you have to wonder if they didn’t give this one away. Shane Greene (9 GS, 53.1 IP, 4.05 ERA, 3.65 FIP) takes the ball out west.
The Moment: Holaday clears the bases in the first.
