Rays 5, Tigers 2: Karns keeps the Tigers at bay, Casali provides the offense

Neither the hitting nor the pitching was particularly impressive in this game. On a night in which Anibal Sanchez didn't have his best stuff he was able to limit the damage to three runs. Unfortunately, former Tigers' farmhand Curt Casali provided enough offense on his own to overcome an anemic Tigers' lineup, blasting two home runs into the left field seats. The Tigers' offense was held to only five hits and dropped another opportunity to gain ground in the wild card race. Sanchez labored through five innings, allowing a run in each of the third, fourth, and fifth innings. He was removed...

Game Notes: Karns vs Sanchez

Nathan Karns not in the lineup for some reason A home-stand that started off so well with a thrilling come from behind victory on Friday quickly turned to mush as the Rays offense were only able to muster three runs combined on Saturday and Sunday. Since the team has returned from the all-star beak (9 games), they're barely averaging over two runs a game. They are 3-6 during that time. Tonight, the Rays will welcome Anibal Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers into town for a three game set, before an off-day on Thursday. The Rays somewhat catch a break as they won't have to face one of the...

Anibal Sanchez wins seventh straight despite uneven performance against Mariners, Nelson Cruz

The 31-year-old starter leads the Tigers with 10 wins this season, but has benefited from strong run support. DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez summed his feelings about facing Nelson Cruz in three simple words. "He is trouble," Sanchez said. Despite the Seattle Mariners' pitching staff giving up eight runs in the third inning, Cruz almost single-handedly kept his team in Wednesday night's 9-4 loss at Comerica Park. After hitting a double in the first inning, the slugger blasted a two-run shot that travelled 441 feet to left field in the fourth, and hit a solo shot to...
