Nate Robertson started out strong, but faded as the season wore on. While this fade didn't knock the Tigers out of playoff contention, it will definitely leave some questioning whether or not he'll be a starter long term for the team.
The Rays sent former Mariner John Halama to the mound, and Halama did well against the Tigers, giving up just 2 runs over 5 innings to get his 7th win of the year.
At the plate, Brandon Inge had a solo Home Run - his 13th of the year. The up the middle pair of Ryan Raburn and Omar Infante each had a pair of hits, with Raburn also scoring a run, and Infante also driving 1 in. Nook Logan also had 3 hits, a run and an RBI.
The Tigers, obviously not qualifying for the playoffs, wrap up their season at 72-90, which marks a 29-game improvement over their 2003 season. Over the next 2 weeks, TigsTown.com will recap the year that was, handing out grades to all the players and give a look into what to expect this offseason.
