Maybe Brandon Lyon is the second coming of Todd Jones, the way he manages to pull unlikely defeats from the jaws of certain victory…
HOLD ON: Inge just hit a solo homer. Back in it.
Hopefully, the Tigers pull this one out. Jackson pitched an absolute jem. I’d hate to see it go to waste.
I have to take back the Tood Jones bit from earlier – Lyon hasn’t done anything yet with the Tigers. At least Jones could make a few SAVES. I’ll reserve judgement on him until the end of the night – after all this is only game #2.
BTW – I’m glad that the Tigers picked up Jackson from the Rays, but how did the Rays let a 14 game winner go? Is Clete Thomas THAT good?
