Tigers 2, Mariners 3: Limp Tigers offense and Octavio Dotel waste brilliant Doug Fister start
Dotel walked Ryan and Ichiro on 9 pitches, then wild pitched both runners into scoring position. Dotel’s horrifying meltdown continued, throwing a diving curve into the dirt past Alex Avila, his second wild pitch easily scoring Ryan. When Dotel finally threw a strike, Jesus Montero smoked it off the center field wall for game tying double. Dotel didn’t get an out, meltdown complete.
Duane Below entered the game in a near hopeless attempt to bail Dotel and the Tigers out. Didn’t happen. (Bless You Boys)
