TO SCORE A RUN THAT WOULD NOT
@ CLEVELAND, OH:
The Tigers and Indians had completed
four innings Friday night when the rains
came and, after a lengthy delay, washed
out the scheduled opener of a 3-game weekend series.
Detroit led 7-6, but because the contest fell one inning short of being official,
it will have to be replayed in its entirety at a yet to be announced date and all
individual records from Friday won't count in the MLB official stats.
Wiped out was a 2rHR by Detroit's Miguel Cabrera plus two dingers by
Cleveland batters. Scott Sizemore belted a solo shot and Travis Hafner a 3rHR.
Also expunged as a horrid start by Jeremy Bonderman. Given a 7-1/Mid-3rd
lead, Bonderman only lasted 2.1-IP and allowed 7-R/7-ER on 8-H & 1-W. Six
consecutive Clevelanders had hits to chase Bondo in a 5-R/B-3rd.
The Tigers announced 11,176 mourners had visited Comerica Park Thursday
during the 17 hours the late H0Fame announcer Ernie Harwell lay in repose next
to his statue inside Gate A.
Ceremonies will honor Harwell at 6:45pm Monday night before the Tigers/
New York Yankees series opener at Comerica Park. Harwell's longest serving
radio partner Paul Carey will throw out the first pitch on a ball delivered by
another former Harwell partner on Tiger radio, Ray Lane. Jose Feliciano will
sing the national anthem, repeating his once controversial soul version of the
song Harwell helped arranged for game five of the 1968 World Series.
Before Friday night's non-game the Indians activated reliever Kerry Wood
(back muscle strain) from the DL and optioned reliever Jensen Lewis to 3A
Rain is also in the forecast Saturday afternoon where Justin Masterson (0-3,
5.40-ERA) of the Indians and Justin Verlander (2-2, 4.50-ERA) of Detroit are the
scheduled starters at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
