The Tigers lose 1-0 and waste a great performance from Justin Verlander.

Detroit's bats went cold at the end of the regular season and it's carried over into the playoffs.

On the bright side, they head back to Detroit with the series tied 1-1.

Miguel Cabrera is limping along and trying his best, but the various injuries he has to his hip and his core area keep him from getting any power or torque and he's been reduced to a singles hitter.

His injuries aren't an excuse for the rest of the team not to hit though....they've got other bats in the lineup that need to step up.

Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander have both come through with excellent starting performances in the playoffs...I expect Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister to follow them with solid outings as well.
