Dontrelle Willis (talking to former Tiger Joe Coleman in top photo) started last night's Flying Tigers-Clearwater Threshers game in Lakeland. He had a no hiter through the first three innings and left after seven trailing 4-0. He yielded 8 hits but perhaps most important he walked none. He had 2 Ks and got several ground ball outs.
Willis seemed to be in good spirits. Doing pregame stretches and running he was singing, "if loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right." I stood 10 feet from him taking photos at the end of the Tiger dugout during the first inning and he was animatedly cheering his teammates.
This morning's paper says he'll make his next start at Erie (AA). I wish him well.
