Tigers 0 - Yank 3 - Embarrassing

Chad Logan 7-20-09

Uggh...

Just about enough said.

3 quality starts (I know French only went 5 innings, but I'm calling it close enough) 0 wins. 5 runs allowed by starters, 5 runs scored by the offense.

Back in the day, when the Tigers would go into Old Yankee Stadium and get beat up for three games, it was always expected, and therefore, kinda ok. But to be swept in a series when your starters only give up 5 runs?

Game 1 - The question is, is Luke French more Mike Maroth or Jamie Moyer. Let's hope Moyer. French, making his third start, allowed just 2 runs (1 earned) to the Yankees, and the Tigers had the game in hand until Zumaya started lobbing the ball toward home plate. I looked over at my wife during the game, and said "He's hurt, or at least they are going to say he's hurt".

Game 2 and 3 - No reason to seperate these two. What we saw was pure Heckle and Jekyll. The pitching couldn't of been any better, and the offense couldn't of been any worse.

It's about time to stop being nice, and waiting for the team to click. McClendon needs to go. And someone needs to light a fire under Cabrerra, who has ZERO extra base hits with RISP since the end of May.

This weekend was proof, pitching MAY win, but a team that is 1 for 25 with RISP WILL lose.
