Detroit Tigers Newsletter: The bats are bad, but there are a couple of Bonds-ian sluggers

Well, we’ve seen worse weekends in Ohio. But hey, this isn’t the Jim Harbaugh Newsletter.

No, it’s the Detroit Tigers Newsletter — hello and welcome! — which means we have to talk about that sweep down in Cleveland, which only felt like it finished up at 62-39. The real score was 20-6 over 27 innings, and that might be giving too much credit to the Tigers — they led for just three of 54 half-innings over the weekend, and those were the first three Sunday. Six half-innings in —the bottom of the third in usual parlance —though, and Cleveland was back to an imposing 2-1 lead, never to be caught again.
