Verlander took a nono into the 7th inning. Pity that Sonny Gray couldn't have put up more of a fight this time!
And could somebody please bitch slap those Detroit radio guys. They were really rubbing the A's faces in it the whole time. Especially the color commentator. I don't know who those guys are, but they're like the radio versions of Ken Harrelson.
I watched the game.
Verlander was a machine last night.
I'll tip my hat to the Gray kid. What is he, 23/24? He did pretty darn well. Why you would pitch inside to Carbrerra is beyond me. Damn... one pitch and he got him.
I like the TBS coverage.
I still am puzzled as to why Jimmy took Verlander out. His pitch count was low and it was obvious the A's couldn't figure him out. It almost cost them... I was praying to a 3 run dinger there at the end. That would have been cool.
