LOS ANGELES (WKZO) - It would appear that Phil Coke's days as a Detroit Tiger may be numbered...fresh off his dismal performance in Detroit's first loss of the season, Coke gave up a double to the Dodgers' Carl Crawford in the 10th inning of Tuesday's series-opening game, allowing the winning run to score in a 3-2 LA win. Max Scherzer and Dan Haren turned in excellent pitching outings, with Victor Martinez helping Scherzer avoid the loss with a 9th inning hit that scored Ian Kinsler and tied up the game. Joba Chamberlain pitched a scoreless 9th, but walked the first batter he faced in the 10th...Coke came in to pitch...and the rest is history. Chamberlain took the loss, as Detroit fell to 4-2 on the season. Game two of the short series will take place Wednesday night, with broadcast time on 590 WKZO set for 9:45.
