The Tigers have been struggling as of late, but one particular pitcher who hasn't been struggling as of late has been Jeremy Bonderman. Bonderman has been outstanding as of late, and he continued that streak with another good pitching effort against Cleveland on Tuesday night.
For the game, Bonderman went 5 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits. He was a bit wild, walking 4 batters, but he did also strike out 7.
3 members of the bullpen combined to shut Cleveland out for the final 3 1/3 innings.
On the other side, the pitching wasn't quite as good. Kyle Denney made his major league debut, and it wasn't one to remember. The Tigers hit Denney hard, as he gave up 8 runs on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings. That left him with an astronomical ERA of 21.60 - although that's certainly not as bad as the ERA of Lino Urdaneta, whose ERA is currently infinite, as he never recorded an out in his lone appearance.
