It is about time a team to picked to be in the World Series got a win. Unfortunately, it came against the Red Sox in a 7-2 loss.
Jon Lester gave up four runs after getting an early 2-0 lead in his second start but got the loss with four walks, no strikeouts, and surrendered five hits. Lester ran into trouble in the fourth inning giving up four runs which was capped off by a Marcus Thames two-run home run.
The Tigers later scored two in eighth and one in the ninth to break the game open for a five run lead.
Goat of the Game: Red Sox Offense
Two runs off of Jeremy Bonderman is not something to cheer about. David Ortiz went 0-4 and continues to slump in the three-hole for Boston.
Preview of the Next Game: Nate Robertson (0-0) vs Tim Wakefield (0-0)
Someone has to get Ortiz going or otherwise this offense is going to go nowhere fast. Also, the top of the order cannot go 0-12 against Jeremy Bonderman and company. Think about it!
*X-Rays negative on Mike Lowell
