"I can't keep putting the team in a deficit like that early and expect something good to come out of it. Extremely frustrating. It's unacceptable. I don't know what it is. It's just a funk I'm in right now.So, we blindfold Daniel Hudson and tell him the game has started while he is still in the bullpen for ten minutes, so he can get that pesky first inning out of his system. I was surprised neither pitching coach Charles Nagy nor Kirk Gibson bothered to leave the dugout, even as Hudson faced his ninth batter of the inning, having retired exactly one man. The loss makes Dan only the second pitcher in franchise history to lose his first four games: Edgar Gonzalez lost his first seven in 2004. Here are post-game thoughts from Kirk Gibson, Kennedy and Stephen Drew.
