Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez eats first loss

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:10:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez suffered his first loss of the season Wednesday, July 20, against the Minnesota Twins. In a 1-1 tie, Rodriguez entered the ballgame in the ninth inning and proceeded to give up three runs (one earned), thanks to two home runs, in two-thirds of an inning. His record is now 1-1.

Fantasy Tip: There are many, many closers who, for whatever reason, manage to struggle whenever they're put into the ballgame in a non-save opportunity, and K-Rod is simply one of those pitchers. It was the same familiar scenario in this one, and miraculously, Rodriguez served up as many homers in the ninth inning as he did for the entire season over 33 2/3 total innings prior to today's contest. He'll be fine after this.
