5 Stats to Know from the Detroit Tigers 12-3 Loss to the Chicago White Sox

  • Nine

The number of runs given up by Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez in a start to forget for him and Tigers fans. Sanchez also allowed nine hits.

  • Two

The number of home runs and walks surrendered by Sanchez. Let me say it again— a start to forget.

  • Three

The number of runs given up by Sanchez’ replacement, Blaine Hardy. Hardy gave up three runs in only 1.1 innings pitched while allowing five hits and a walk. He struck out zero. One of last season’s breakout performers, Hardy’s ERA on the season is now 12.46.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by the Tigers’ bullpen after Hardy’s departure. In fact, the team only allowed five baserunners the rest of the way while striking out two. Angel Nesbitt threw 1.1 scoreless innings while Tom Gorzelanny, Al Alburquerque and Joba Chamberlain all threw scoreless frames.

  • Five

J.D. Martinez hit his fifth home run of the season in the loss. His batting average sits at .255, but no one can doubt Martinez’ power. He’s proving that last season was no fluke.
