It’s not all that often that you see an eight on the board in a playoff game, especially in a game like this one where hits and rallies have been awfully hard to come by. Yesterday, the ball really traveled out of the park at Comerica, and there is no doubt that this shouldn’t be the case again on Tuesday, especially with the game being played later in the day. The fact remains though, that the Tigers can’t hit the broad side of a barn right now, and that’s saying something for a team that was able to explode for crooked innings time and time again in the regular season. However, of the 27 times that Detroit has come to the plate, it has walked away with donuts in 25 of them, and only six runs have been plated in three games.
The pitching matchup really isn’t one that is going to be conducive to ‘under’ games, but remember that RHP Daniel Straily and RHP Doug Fister are both well rested, and they are both going to have a shot to get the job done against lineups that have been suspect at times. Most never figured that RHP Sonny Gray was going to be able to go zero for zero with RHP Justin Verlander in Game 2, but that turned out to happen. Now, it’s time for both pitchers to have big games. Maybe one swing of the bat turns it all around for Detroit and gets this to a Game 5, but that’s the only way we see it happening. ‘Under’ is the word in Game 4.
