Greinke the Great


(Above: Chip Ambres strikes out against Mike Maroth, Right: Magglio Ordonez hits a solo hr in the 2nd.)

tigerpaw3qm.pngTonight was not the Tiger's night, but it was Zach Greinke's. Greinke went for a Complete Game while only giving up 3 ERs. Matt Stairs helped him out by hitting a bases loaded double in the 1st clearing the bases. The Royals never trailed after this.

Mike Maroth went only 6 innings while giving up 5 ERs. Mike Maroth said after the game, "Tonight just wasn't my night. My curveball wasn't breaking and I didn't have any zip on my fastball". Alex Lewis has told us that he will have a talk with the team because they just weren't prepared for the game. Lewis stated, "They just weren't prepared. They were jacking around during BP and it showed. I will make sure that they don't take the Royals lightly anymore".

INJURY REPORT: Chris Shelton came out in the 6th with a pulled groin. Shelton dove for a ball, trying to keep it in the infield to prevent a run. He is expected to be back in action in 6 days.

i like the young setup of the team, with a couple vets in there. looks like you have them built for the long all, but may struggle a little with the pitching at last for the first bit of time.

but you appear to have a fuatre winner here
