Split away, win at home. The Tigers can still avoid a return trip to AT&T if they win tonight and sweep Comerica, but that prospect is less likely than even the 8 – 3 score would indicate. They looked bad last night and had their Ace blown away by arguably the 2nd worst pitcher in the Giants’ rotation.
