Tigers vs. Rangers: Score Holds At 1-0 After Two

Three batters into Tuesday night's Game 3 between the Tigers and the Rangers, the Rangers had a 1-0 lead, thanks to three singles. One of the singles wasn't terrible!

The score is still 1-0 as I write this, and I'm writing this during the commercial break between the bottom of the second and the top of the third. In the second, Doug Fister made pretty easy work of the Rangers' hitters he faced, getting around a two-out single by Yorvit Torrealba.

Colby Lewis went and got himself into more of a jam, but, yeah, as implied, the Tigers couldn't cash in. Victor Martinez drew a leadoff walk, and he moved to second on Jhonny Peralta's one out single through the hole by short. But Alex Avila struck out - continuing his slump - and then Ryan Raburn chased a slider off the plate for another strikeout that ended the inning and stranded the runners.

So that's how we got to the oh would you look at that, Doug Fister just navigated through the top of the third. Weak single, double play, strikeout. Live-blogging is hard when the pitching is good and/or the hitting is not good. To the bottom of the third we go! Lewis has thrown 41 pitches. An unsurprising number of them have been strikes.
