- Zach Greinke is ridiculous. Seriously. A complete game win in just over two hours with only three hits given up? Fugeddaaboutit.
- On the other side of the coin is Rick Porcello. Rookie Rick looked pretty solid, only giving up four hits in six innings of work. The problem: two were home runs. Porcello has been pretty solid to begin this season, but he continues to make “slap” hitters like Alberto Callaspo look like sluggers, which has to be a bit nerve-wracking.
- Gerald Laird had two of the Tigers three hits last night. Ugh.
Probable starters for 4/25:
- Tigers – Zach Miner (1-1, 8.10 ERA, 6 SO)
- Royals – Kyle Davies (1-0, 2.89 ERA, 21 SO)
