Dontrel Willis: What a game last night!

Posted by detroitsportsandmore on May 20, 2009

With all of Hockeytown focused on the game 2 match up with the Black Hawks, little attention was given to the Tigers game against the Rangers, a high powered offensive team riding a seven game win streak. Willis was making another start after not looking special in his previous outing.

The first was a little rocky, but the Rangers left some men stranded and earned no runs. Earning just one hit over the next 5 innings the Rangers did not score any runs against Willis. He managed to go 6 and a third scoreless innings, giving up one hit along the way. His 5 strike outs to just 2 walks was also encouraging.

Add to his performance the fact that the bullpen shut out the Rangers, bringing the shut out total to 6 this season. Up from a total of just 2 all of last year.

It’s one game, which usually carries little meaning in baseball, but, at least for Tigers fans, it should be a game to remember.
