Detroit Tigers Spring Training Game Review: 3/7/2018

3-7-18 Detroit Tigers vs Toronto Blue Jays

The Detroit Tigers held a 5-4 lead until the eighth inning as they fell to Toronto Blue Jays 6-5. Victor Martinez and Nicholas Castellanos both belted home runs in the loss. Castellanos has four home runs so far in spring training. Victor Martinez meanwhile has three dingers to his name so far.

Other notables for the Olde English D included RBIs from Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Jose Iglesias, and Nicholas Castellanos.

On the mound, Matt Boyd and Enrique Burgos got beat up in four innings of work. Boyd pitched three innings giving up three hits and striking out one as he put up a 5.63 ERA. In one inning of work, Burgos posted a 7.36 ERA on the day. The Tigers loss had plenty of errors. Third baseman Ronny Rodriguez contributed the only error of the day. However, there were plenty of more plays that could have been counted as errors if they had gone another way.

 

The Tigers face off against Jolly Roger tomorrow at 1:05 PM. Jordan Zimmerman is starting off the mound for the Tigers and Nick Kingman is starting for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
