What a befitting song for this day.
The Detroit Tigers had game 2, up 5-1 with a red hot pitcher who performed the was manager Leyland had hoped for and all of us expected. 13 KOs and hitless until the 6th inning. Max Scherzer as usual was on fire.
I will never understand the philosophy of taking this kind of pitcher out of the game. In the old days nobody was counting the pitches thrown, if they were doing good they continued until they weren’t doing good.
Denny McClain, Mickey Lolich were never pulled from fantastic pitching performances, they finished the game.
Boston didn’t win, Detroit handed them the game and there is a very distinctive difference.
