Today’s game through emotions:
Happy: My daughter wins a tee-shirt at Radio Disney
Thrilled: She loses a game and gives me the Perry pin from her set of Phineas and Ferb pins given as a consolation.
Wonderment: The Tigers send 12 to the plate in the third and score 7-runs on Ubaldo Jimenez, the pitcher the Indians traded for to help them catch the Tigers in the AL Central.
Frustration: Porcello returns 5 of those runs and gets pulled in the fourth.
Hope: Leyland yanks relievers as they walk batters.
Anger: A blown call erases Betemit at third when Santiago successfully bunted him over. The Tigers should have had first and third with no outs.
Resignation: The Indians chip away and get the score to 8-7. Valverde walks a batter, hits a batter and induces a ground out leaving runners at 2nd and 3rd when LaPorta flies to center.
WAHOOHEEEWHOOWAAA YEAH YES OH JACKSON: Jackson throws out Fukudome trying to score on the fly out to end the game. The Tigers sweep the Indians and lead the Central by 4.5 games with a little over a month to play and have Verlander on the mound tomorrow.
