The Tigers are playing ridiculously well, as evidenced by tonight's game. They're taking advantage of every opening. Ben Broussard made a two-out error in the first inning, and the next batter hits a home run. Casey Blake fell down in the outfield, and Curtis Granderson ends up on second base. The next hitter drives him in.
The Indians didn't take advantage of opportunities. They left 15 men on base tonight, and didn't have a hit with a runner in scoring position. And that's not counting the four double plays they hit into. The blame tonight rests with the offense, as Paul Byrd pitched well again, not allowing an earned run in seven innings.
