Tigers take big early lead in Game 4 of ALCS

Jake Peavy‘s fourth career postseason outing is off to a poor start in Detroit. A really, really poor start.

Peavy made it through the first inning unscathed, but he allowed a single to Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the second and then issued a pair of walks to load the bases. Omar Infante popped out, but Peavy then issued another walk to Austin Jackson, pushing a runner home. Jose Iglesias drove in the Tigers’ second run on a fielder’s choice groundout and then Torii Hunter hit a two-run double to left and Miguel Cabrera added an RBI single to center field.

It’s a 5-0 lead for host Detroit as the top of the third inning gets underway in this ALCS Game 4 at Comerica Park.

Doug Fister is on the hill for the Tigers, who trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven Championship Series.

    Peavy finally got his chance to pitch in an LCS and he appropriately peed down his leg.

      i don’t think we couch potatoes should rip on guys that are trying their hearts out, but don’t succeed because the guys they’re competing against are also trying their hearts out.

        happytwinsfan can you HONESTLY say NONE of your comments don’t completely counter that opinion?
        I always love the people who come out, and talk about how elite these guys are, and what they do is not something any of us really could do and all that jazz then about 2 seconds later they are trashing a player they hate.

        I sincerely hope you have said ZERO negative comments about any professional athlete, I just HIGHLY doubt it.

        bender, you’re right, sometimes i am a sanctimonious hypocrite – just like most of us. but having company don’t make it right.

        i do try to only trash players when they do something OFF the field that sucks. like adrian peterson of the vikings leaving the kids he’s biologically fathered (especially the one that was beaten to death by some low life boyfriend of his biological mother) laying around like abandoned candy wrappers. or kirby pucket who was credibly accused of sexual assault several times.

        athletic talent ain’t nothing. character is destiny, when the two come together it’s special.

    The call at second on the double play was not a neighborhood call. It was a zip code all. Brutal. At least a foot off the bag when he takes a bad toss. Whatever . They still got five.

      The score is 1-0 or 0-0, he’s safe. I hate when umps give generous calls just because the score margin is up there. Make the losing team earn it.

        The score was 1-0 when that play happened. It would have ended the inning at 1-0 if they had turned the DP.

    Victorino crying like a 18th century English lady about a curve ball that landed 100% in the strike zone….keep crying BooHoo Sox.

    • happytwinsfan - Oct 16, 2013 at 9:34 PM

      “18th century English lady”? I’m intrigued, please elaborate.

    • proudlycanadian - Oct 16, 2013 at 9:58 PM

      I do not know anything about English ladies from the 18th Century (1700 to 1799). I have read about English Ladies from the 19th Century (1800 to 1899) and both of my grandmothers (English and Irish) were born in the 19th Century.

      I do agree, that an elaboration of your comment about 18th century English ladies would clarify your point.

      • bender4700 - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:01 PM

        No elaboration needed. Victorino needs to stop crying over every pitch.

    Miggy still the man even at only about 65%. It only took Leyland half the playoffs to shake up the lineup, and get some results. Something that should have been done at the begining of this series. Still a lot of game to go, though, go Tigers.

      Action Jackson has 2 RBI’s so far.

      • Minoring In Baseball - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:03 PM

        Yep…from his new postion in the lineup!

      • bender4700 - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:07 PM

        The only Tiger not getting in on the hitting is Prince. Every other guy has either moved a runner, scored, or got a good hit.

        Dougie doing good, pitching lose, giving up hits, but keeping them on base and away from home.

    A rough night for Scrappy and the vaunted Boston infield.

  7. happytwinsfan - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:01 PM

    after looking at leyland in the dugout i googled up leyand’s age. dude’s only 68 but he looks 78. MY HERO! please sneak a cig (and a double vodka) at the back the dugout. fuck the bio technology service providers and go down a swingin jimmy.

    ROWWRRR!!! (cough cough)
