A few notes on the Tigers 13-2 win at Cleveland Wednesday night, and a few other things as well:

  • The Tigers scored 30 runs in their last three games during which they went 3-0.
  • The Tigers scored 33 runs in their first twelve games, during which they went 2-10.
  • The Tigers hit 7 home runs in their first twelve games.
  • The Tigers hit 7 home runs in their last three games.
  • Indians starter and loser C.C. Sabathia has now lost more games to Detroit (9) in his career than he's lost to any other team.
  • Sabathia, the 2007 Cy Young Award winner, is now 0-3 in 2008 with an ERA of 13.50.
  • Sabathia has allowed 9 earned runs in back-to-back starts.
  • Sabathia is the first Cleveland pitcher in 100 years to win in double figures in each of his first seven years in the Majors. 
  • The last Cleveland pitcher to win 10 or more in his first seven seasons was Addie Joss (1902-09).  Ever hear of Joss?  I can't tell you how to pronounce his name, but his career ERA of 1.89 (min 2000 IP) is second-best in AL history.
  • Detroit has caught Cleveland, the defending AL Central champions, in the division standings.  Each club is 5-10.
