It’s all slipping away for the Tigers. They’ve spent most of the season hanging on to first place in the Central, but could find themselves chasing the Royals after tonight thanks to yet another disappointing performance, this time in Pittsburgh.
Verlander left early with a shoulder issue and then the Tigers bat boy suffered what looked like a knee injury while doing his thing near the first base line.
Can it get any worse for the Tigers? The bullpen is garbage. The Royals are on a 7-game winning streak (winning again as I type) and the Tigers bat boy is even cursed.
This isn’t a good sign for Motown.
