Detroit Tigers Week in Numbers: Still finding a way to disappoint

Even in a week where the Detroit Tigers only played four games, they still found ways to disappoint.

The team played a double-header in Oakland on Wednesday, in which they won the first game 7-2. They were promptly shut out in the second game, 5-0. They then played host to Minnesota for a short two-game set and lost both of those games.

As has been the case often this year, the injury list has been added to yet again. Starting pitcher Michael Pineda has landed back on the injured list with a triceps injury, Alex Faedo and Kyle Funkhouser have been shut down for the rest of the season, and Rony Garcia is considered day-to-day after an injury in his return start as well. Shortstop Javier Baez also left Sunday’s game early with an arm injury and is considered day-to-day.

Tarik Skubal had a very nice outing this week, going six innings in his only start. He allowed two runs, only one of which was earned while striking out nine. Unfortunately, there aren’t any other outstanding performances to talk about. Offensively, Javy Baez had four hits for the week, leading the team.

Here’s how the week broke down in numbers:

Runs scored: 12

Runs allowed: 24

Team batting average: .177

Team on-base percentage: .285

Starters ERA: 3.24

Bullpen ERA:5.89

Team overall record: 38-58, 14 games out of first place in the A.L. Central.
