The number of hits allowed by David Price in 2.1 innings pitched. Price struggled in his last start against the Yankees, and had yet another rough outing on Wednesday.
Price also allowed eight runs (all earned). This sunk the Tigers as well as Price owners in fantasy leagues.
The number of runs allowed by Detroit relievers Tom Gorzelanny, Joba Chamberlain and Ian Krol. This is a positive as all three will be heavily relied on down the stretch for the Tigers—especially with Joe Nathan being ruled out for the season.
The number of pitches seen by Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose. Gose didn’t have a hit, but reached base on a walk and scored a run. The fact that he taxed opposing pitchers for a game-high 30 pitches is a good sign.
Price’s ERA following the start. Normally starters’ ERAs balloon after bad starts, Price is so good that his ERA ballooned to an extremely respectable number.
