Game 67: Tigers 6, Indians 2

Mitch Talbot, philosopher and today's losing pitcher.

 

The high-water mark for the Indians came in the top of the first. The Indians took the lead 2-0 on the strength of triples by Michael Brantley and Shin-Soo Choo. Detroit tied the game in the bottom of the inning, took the lead in the fourth, and put the game away in the fifth.

Mitch Talbot was pulled after the Tigers took a 5-2 lead in the fifth inning. He had thrown over 90 pitches at that point, and had allowed 11 base runners (9 hits, 2 walks). Among those 9 hits allowed were two home runs, bumping his total to 7 for the season (in 38 innings).

The Tribe offense after that first inning collected just three hits the rest of the way. They had a couple of opportunities to make it a ball game, including loading the bases in the sixth, but couldn't capitalize on them.
