Detroit Tigers AT Los Angeles Angels
Saturday, April 20, 2013
Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, CA
Game Time - 3:05 p.m. EDT



______________________________________



Pitching matchup

Tigers: RHP Rick Porcello (0-1, 5.11 ERA)

Porcello rejoins the rotation after Detroit had him pitch out of the bullpen for a few days on the road trip. He had a loss and a no-decision in two starts against the Angels last year, allowing seven earned runs over 11 2/3 innings.



Angels: RHP Garrett Richards (0-0, 4.22 ERA)

Richards pitched well in his first start of the season, giving up four runs (two of which came when he was out of the game) in 6 1/3 innings. One of his best starts last year came vs. the Tigers, throwing seven shutout innings in Detroit on July 17.

Angels look to keep Tigers on the ropes

By Zack Meisel / MLB.com | 4/20/2013 3:28 AM ET

Garrett Richards has tamed this potent Tigers lineup before. Now that he's filling in for the anchor of his team's rotation, injured right-hander Jered Weaver, the expectations are loftier and the task at hand is quite the tall order.

"You have to make pitches," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "It's not a forgiving lineup, but if you can make pitches and catch the ball on the defensive side, you have a chance to contain them."

Tommy Hanson contained the Tigers on Friday, when he tossed six shutout innings in the Angels' 8-1 win. Success against Detroit isn't unprecedented for Richards, either. He submitted one of the best starts of his career against Jim Leyland's bunch last year, when he held them to three hits in seven innings of a 13-0 win on July 17.

The Tigers are off to a 9-7 start, while the Angels have limped out of the gates at 5-10, but momentum is on the Halos' side after picking up their third straight home win on Friday night. The Tigers, conversely, needed a two-out RBI in the ninth to prevent being shut out in back-to-back games for the first time in five years.

"Torii [Hunter] is off to a great start, that whole team is off to a great start," Scioscia said. "They have some power arms, they're holding leads and their lineup is as deep as you can get. You have to pitch well, you have to navigate your way through some things at times, I think the key is to make your pitches and hopefully you're going to make the plays defensively."

In his first start of the season last Saturday, Richards yielded four runs on three hits and three walks against the Astros. He didn't factor into the decision.

Right-hander Rick Porcello, seeking his first win of the season, will oppose Richards. The 24-year-old has fashioned a 5.11 ERA in two starts, giving up seven runs in 12 1/3 innings. In seven career outings against Los Angeles, Porcello has compiled a 3-2 record and 5.80 ERA.

Tigers: Valverde impresses in Minor League debut

Longtime closer Jose Valverde did his best Friday to convince the Tigers he can help their ballclub.

Valverde, who has a May 8 opt-out deadline written into his Minor League contract, tossed a hitless inning in his first Minor League action, working the seventh frame for Class A Lakeland.

Angels: Callaspo lands on DL
The Angels placed third baseman Alberto Callaspo on the disabled list prior to Friday's game. The infielder has been dealing with tightness in his right calf for more than a week.

"Alberto wasn't making enough progress to project he was going to be able to play here in the next three or four days," Scioscia said. "He'll be ready in eight or nine days."

Callaspo is batting .273 in nine games this season.

Worth noting
• Hunter, who spent five seasons with the Angels, singled to center in his first at-bat against his former team on Friday. He tacked on a ninth-inning double and scored a run.

• Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson recorded the second multi-steal game of his career on Friday. He also swiped two bags on June 12, 2010.

Game 17: Breaking down the drought
BECK'S BLOG
Posted on April 20, 2013 at 9:56 pm

The last time the Tigers scored so few runs in a three-game stretch — or four games, for that matter — Alan Trammell was a lame duck manager, and the Tigers were already eyeing Leyland to replace him.

It was September 2005, when the Tigers went 8-24 to close out the season. They suffered back-to-back 2-0 shutouts, one to Jon Garland and the White Sox in Chicago, the next to Scott Elarton and the Indians in Detroit, then saw Cliff Lee and CC Sabathia hold them to a run in each of the next couple games. By the time they broke out of it, they scored two runs or less in eight consecutive games of a nine-game losing streak.

No one would have figured this year’s Tigers offense would be mentioned in the same conversation as that one. For a three- and four-game stretch, however, that’s the statistical comparison.

If not for Miguel Cabrera’s RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning Friday night, the Tigers would be heading into Sunday with three consecutive shutouts, a streak they haven’t had since 1995. Really, their offensive struggles have gone on all week, but since outlasting Felix Hernandez for a 14-inning win Wednesday night in Seattle, the Tigers have been shut down by Hisashi Iwakuma, Tommy Hanson and Garrett Richards.

Richards, in particular, was notable, inducing 12 ground-ball outs over seven innings.

They’re now 4-for-44 with runners in scoring position since Tuesday, and all four of those hits are from Miguel Cabrera. No one else has had a hit with runners in scoring position since Jhonny Peralta last Sunday in Oakland.

The feeling from the Tigers is that Hernandez pitched them well and they haven’t found their timing since.

“In Seattle, we faced a lot of good pitching,” Peralta said. “They made the offense a little bit down. And here, we come here, and it’s the same thing. They’ve made good pitches to us. We need to make adjustments and try to find out how we can make a run.”

That said, their ground-ball tendencies have been surprising. On Friday, the ground balls led to double plays and quieted several scoring opportunities. On Thursday and Saturday, they had few scoring chances at all. The hits they’ve gotten have generally been for single bases.

Play of the game: If the Tigers defense makes an early play behind Porcello, the opening inning never gets to the point where Mike Trout steps to the plate with the bases loaded. That said, Porcello had a two-strike count, tried to get him out with a curveball and hung it. It was his 47th and final pitch of the inning.

“To be honest with you, at that point in the inning I was pretty gassed,” Porcello said afterwards. “That at-bat I was fighting for my life to get out of there and just get that last out and regroup. I hung a breaking ball a little too up in the zone and he hit it well.”

Line of the day: Porcello gave up nine runs on nine hits over two-thirds of an inning. According to baseball-reference.com, he’s the second Tigers pitcher since 1916 to give up nine earned runs without getting out of the first inning. Hank Borowy allowed nine earned runs without retiring a batter against the St. Louis Browns on August 18, 1951. Nate Cornejo had a nine-run first in 2003, but he made it through the inning, and just three of the runs were earned thanks to a Dmitri Young error.

Stat of the day: 1 — Swing and miss against Porcello, a changeup to Josh Hamilton that put him in a 1-2 count. He fouled off a sinker and another changeup and took three pitches to draw a walk.

Print it: “I struggled a little bit with my command, but it wasn’t all that bad. I was keeping it down in the zone. I don’t really know what to tell you except it wasn’t in the cards for me today. I did the best I could to dig deep, especially when I started to feel some pressure. It just didn’t happen for me. I wish I had a breakdown for you. I was throwing good sinkers. It just didn’t turn for me.” — Porcello


“It takes pitching, hitting and defense. Any two can win. All three make you unbeatable.”
