Thoughts after five innings White Sox, Tigers Tuesday night

Quintana: Been tough
- The Tigers' base running is starting to become a problem. Eugenio Suarez was picked off first base in the last two games of the Angels' series, and Andrew Romine tonight. There is no excuse for it. None. Especially considering how much the Tigers have been struggling offensively since the All Star break.
- Home plate umpire Clint Fagan's strike zone is all over the place. His call for a strike on Adam Eaton on Anibal Sanchez's change up in the fifth inning was brutal. Oh, and by the way, that FOX track box is off center tonight. Gosh, it's inaccurate.
- Yeah, the Tigers need J.D. Martinez's bat to wake up. It did with a triple. He has great power. He is one of those rare hitters who drives extra base hits, even if he doesn't center it perfectly. I think his recent slump was an aberration, not a trend.
- We'll see about Anibal Sanchez. He's been OK tonight, but the sixth and seventh innings have been his Waterloo recently. Will it be different tonight?
- I don't know what's more amazing, the Tigers have nine hits off a tough lefty, Jose Quintana, tonight in just five innings, or they only two runs to show for it.
