Rangers vs. Tigers: Texas Tacks On 2 More, Leads 12-4 After 6

I thought two good things were going to happen for the Detroit Tigers in the bottom of the sixth!

Well, really one thing.

I thought Brad Penny, after throwing 182 innings during the regular season, was going to make his first appearance of the postseason (which he did) and hold the Texas Rangers scoreless (which he did not).

Penny did retire two of the first three Rangers he faced, but after an intentional walk and consecutive singles, the Rangers had piled on for two more runs. They've now scored in three of the six innings, the same as the Tigers ... with the difference, of course, being that the Rangers scored nine runs in the third.

This game seemed out of hand at 7-2, out of hand at 9-2, and out of hand at 10-2.

Now it seems really out of hand: Rangers 12, Tigers 4 after six full innings.
