Talkin' Baseball: Pity Mike Maroth. His ERA wasn't that bad, he'd had a couple of decent starts, and still went 0-6 in April. But would May bring a new leaf? After 7, Maroth had a no-hitter going, and was leading 3-0. Even though he'd thrown almost 100 pitches, you've gotta leave him in until he gives up a hit.

Then it got ugly in the top of the 8th. Single. Single. Sacrifice, 1 out. Groundout, 2 outs. Maybe Maroth'll get out of it. Nope. Wild pitch, 3-1 Tigers. Single, 3-2 Tigers. Single. Maroth leaves and if if everyone on the basepaths scores, Maroth's the pitcher of record. Enter Matt Anderson, who Alan Trammell probably figured could get a four-out save. Walk, they're loaded. Single, 2 runs in, 4-3. Single, 5-3. Pull Anderson. Single, 6-3. Pull the next reliever, and Matt Roney retires Tony Batista to stop the bleeding. Tigers lose 6-4, and Maroth goes to 0-7.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2003 Detroit Tigers.
