The Detroit Tigers' season is over after an embarrassing Game 6 effort in Arlington in which they lost 15-5 to the American League Champion Texas Rangers
Thanks in large part to a nine-run third inning by Max Scherzer, Daniel Schlereth, and Rick Porcello, the Motor City Kitties hung their heads and watched the red and blue confetti fly throughout Rangers Ballpark Saturday night.

I was prepared for lots of Tigers winning scenarios tonight. I saw the good Max Scherzer showing up. I envisioned the Tigers bats picking up where they left off in game five.
