Everything was fine until three batters into the game.
Or until the third pitch to the third batter.
At that point the continuation of a Tigers trip which hasn’t exactly been their best got worse got angrier maybe even got a little worrisome with a 5-1 loss Monday night to the White Sox.
And with the early ejection of Miguel Cabrera.
The loss trimmed the Tigers’ lead over the second-place Indians in the American League Central to 4½ games the first time since Aug 5 that it’s been under five games.
With two games remaining they are 2-5 on their last three-city trip of the season.
Asked after the game if he was concerned about Cleveland manager Jim Leyland said “I don’t worry about the other teams I worry about my team.
“If we take care of business we’ll be fine. But we’re in a little bit of a funk right now.”
Speaking of funks what happened in the first inning?
Cabrera got tossed by plate umpire Brian Gorman for over-barking about a checked-swing strike that’s what happened....
