Last night, Javier Vazquez did not allow a single run in his effort against the Tigers, silencing critics, and securing his role in the rotation.
"I just felt unhittable last night." Explained Vazquez. "And the fact that it was a rain out does not cheapen it for me. There was not a single hit or run against me. That's something."
The Tigers, who remained baffled by Vazquez's hitless and scoreless effort had little answers.
"I don't know what to say. I mean, everyone was saying that Vazquez was done, that we would be teeing off against him. Then last night, he was the starter, and we didn't get a single hit. It doesn't matter that the game was rained out, we can't make excuses. We were no-hit by Javier Vazquez." Explained Detroit third baseman Brandon Inge.
But the Tigers are taking comfort in the fact that they'll be facing Vasquez again tonight.
"I'm glad we're facing him again today. After last night's game, I sat in my apartment weeping. We need to redeem ourselves." Said centerfielder Austin Jackson.
