Tampa Bay Rays left fielder Carl Crawford, leaps onto the wall with fans trying to catch a home run ball by Detroit Tigers Marcus Thames in the fourth inning of the spring training baseball game in Lakeland, Fla., Monday, March 3. Thames got a three run homer. (Nice ad, eh?)
Tigers drop game to Devil Rays
Two in a row? Oh well, it’s only Spring Training.
The Tigers fell 10-9, but showed off their offense once again. I guess I may have jinxed the team when I boasted about the team’s 1.80 ERA.
The important news was Bonderman pitched well in his three innings. He allowed two hits, but struck out three. Thames had a nice bomb (pictures above) as well.
MONDAY’S STUD (s): I’m giving the nod to both Bonderman and Thames (who also added two singles and three RBI). Again, Bondo was solid, let’s just hope it stays that way.
