Spring Training is finally here!
Ok, we all remember what happened the last time the Tigers played the Royals … let’s hope tonight’s game is the start of a turnaround that was supposed to happen when all these big hitters were brought to the Motor City,
Nate the Great in action today
Nate Robertson hits the hill for the Tigers today against the Pirates.
In two games — one start — Robertson has only given up one run, but more importantly, he has struck out five. He’s also given up five hits.
Today’s away game starts at 1:05 p.m.
BONDO NOT SO GOOD
For lack of a better term, Bonderman was pretty bad Saturday against the Blue Jays.
In four innings (yes, four) he gave up three runs — and a homer — on five hits. Not what Tiger fans want to see out of their ace.
On the offensive side, Polanco hit a homer
as did Mike Hessman, but it wasn’t enough.
The Tigers fall to 6-5 on the season.
Bondo on the Bumb
Today at 1 p.m. Bonderman will make his third spring start, and so far, so good. However, there is still some room for improvement.
In two starts this spring, the 26-year-old righty has been decent. He has tossed five innings and given up two runs. But keep in mind, he’s been working on a few pitches. It would be nice to see him get a few more Ks today.
Today against the Blue Jays, he’ll get a test going against a pretty solid lineup.
The Tigers will try to end their three game winless streak today when they take on the Astros.
Nate Robinson is on the bump for the Tigs, while Roy Oswalt will start for the Astros. Robinson needs to pitch a tad better this time around. In his first outing he gave up a run on three hits, while also hitting a batter.
Game time is slated for 1:05 p.m.
I think the story on mlive is the beginning of the end for Brandon Inge. If anyone has yet to read this, the link is below.
I think this will not end well. Inge, put the team first, especially since you have a chance at another World Series run.
