5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 3-2 Loss to the Minnesota Twins

  • Three

The number of hits the Tigers accumulated. Anthony Gose, J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes were the only Detroit players to notch a hit. The Tigers only added two walks, both coming from Alex Avila. Twins leadoff hitter Danny Santana had the same number of hits as the entire Detroit lineup.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by Blaine Hardy and Al Alburquerque in an inning of work. Both lowered their ERAs which sat at 7.36 and 11.37 respectively entering the game.

  • .355

Miguel Cabrera’s ridiculous average after the game despite going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Best hitter in the league. Period.

  • Two

The aforementioned number of walks by Avila. The fact that the catcher can draw walks is a positive sign going forward if Avila can’t significantly raise his average above .171.

  • Seven

The number of strikeouts by Tigers hitters. In a close game with a dearth of offense, a 7/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio isn’t great, or even close to being called “good”.
