Not as bad!
Angels 2, Tigers 0
On one hand, you can look at this game as a pretty solid step forward for the run prevention side of the ledger against the Angels. Instead of allowing 12 runs, they allowed only two runs, and Anibal Sanchez (11 GS, 67.1 IP, 5.75 ERA, 4.31 FIP) allowed only one home run. He pitched pretty well over seven innings of work and kept the Tigers in the game, but they didn’t offer much of a fight against Hector Santiago until the 8th, but they couldn’t cash in on the bases loaded situation. At this point, winning a series against the Halos is too much to ask, but just the mere fact that it wasn’t a blowout is a victory. Shane Greene (10 GS, 59 IP, 4.27 ERA, 3.46 FIP) will get the ball on Saturday.
The Moment: Iglesias makes a tremendous throw in the 3rd.
