The Detroit Tigers have been pressing, manager Ron Gardenhire said Saturday afternoon. They’re squeezing their bats too hard. Trying too much to get something – anything – going offensively.
“We have to try to get back to enjoying the game of baseball again,” he said. “We’re pressing an awful lot.”
They will try to get back to enjoying baseball again tomorrow.
On this day, they lost again to the Oakland Athletics – their sixth straight overall and 15th straight to the A's – unable to do anything offensively. Matthew Boyd allowed four runs in 6u2153 innings and they lost, 4-1, at Comerica Park.
