With runners and 2nd and 3rd and nobody out the Tigers had something like a 65% chance of winning. With a runner at 2nd and 1 out they had a 52% chance of winning. That's a 13% swing in WE.

Doug Fister hit in the head with a line drive

Spoiler


I'm not the Tigers' medical staff but they seemed to evaluate him REALLY quickly. Hope he's ok.

How is he looking after five shutout innings with six whiffs?

Like he should be down a couple of runs.
The Fielder play at the plate.
The Cabrera smash to 3B that Pandoval gloved.
The next at bat where Prince just missed a very hittable pitch and hammered it to left center.

Good to see that you've mastered the on screen scoreboard that gave TVnSG so much trouble.

I suspect that these are the Golden Days of on screen clarity. How long will it be before someone gets the idea that they can sell ads to be placed within the scoreboard information box? We will be trying to figure out the count and base runner situation while some flashing, pulsing, glaring message on behalf of some insurance company assaults our eyes.

Poor hitting by the Tigers.

Cabrera had two very hittable pitches here in the 7th. Swung through a fastball and fouled off a slider.

I'd rather see Blanco take his cuts than have him bunt and leave it up to Crawford and some pinch hitter, probably Huff, ugh.
