"'He (Kyle Lobstein) kept the ball down,' said ( Brad ) Ausmus . 'He did a good job. We hoped we wouldn't have to use him, but he did what we thought he could do for us—pitch a lot of innings if we were in a jam. It's not like we were shocked by anything he did.' In the seventh, however, the Twins loaded the bases on a one-out triple and two walks, only to unload them on Kennys Vargas ' three-run double. That wasn't the end of Lobstein's afternoon. He came back out to work a scoreless eighth inning, ending up with a line of 5 2/3 innings pitched, three runs allowed on four hits and four walks, with three strikeouts. He threw 100 pitches, the most in a relief stint for any Tiger since Steve Sparks threw 100 in Seattle on July 30, 2003 . 'I just tried to go as deep as I could,' Lobstein said. 'I felt fresh (because it would have been his turn to start for Toledo).' Thus ended the story of a rookie pitcher's unusual first game. On a plane, off a plane. On time, not on time. A three-run double after three scoreless innings. An eventful, but presentable debut." - The Detroit News Staff Writer Tom Gage (08/23/2014, 'Tigers' Kyle Lobstein thrown to the Twins in memorable major-league debut', Source )
