Verlander allowed 5 runs. 4 of those came in one inning assisted by a Raburn error and Peralta’s lack of range. Cabrera also tried to barehand a squeeze play to make the play at the plate and got no outs.
The cookie lady did not come.
In addition to the Raburn error, Purcey walked a lefty and allowed a single to the next batter clearing the bases of inherited runners. Since I was a mild Sizemore supporter this pair of outcomes is especially bitter.
This was the worst Verday ever.
Cabrera did get his 1499th and 1500th hits. I especially enjoyed his 1499th hit. It was a two-run home run. Ordonez reached on a strike out on a Pierczynski passed ball just before the home run. That was fun.
