Dontrelle Willis windup.jpgDontrelle Willis has had a couple of decent starts so far this season, but after today’s performance it may be safe to say that he’s officially back. D-Train threw six shutout innings with six strikeouts and gave up only four hits and two walks, leading the Tigers to a 3-0 win over the Twins.

Granted, this was a diminished Twins’ lineup — Morneau and only one pinch hitting at bat for Mauer — but it was arguably Willis’ best start in four years. Tigers and Willis fans will no doubt take it.

    It’s good to see Dontrelle is making his way back. Maybe even with a suspect rotation the Tigers will be able to keep up a good race in the Central, they still have a lot of games against the Twins and the M&M boys won’t be out forever.
    Haven’t noticed any Tiger fans around here, so I’ll take up the slack, at least til Verlander gets his stuff together. Maybe then someone will appear.

    Good for Dontrelle. He’s a good kid and I’m happy to see him retracking himself. He was indispensible to the Feesh in their ’03 championship run and if he pulls himself back together he’ll be a huge asset, both tactical and in terms of morale, to the Tiggers.
