The Tigers improved to 8 and 4 on the season when they beat the Indians, 4 to 1, in yesterday’s finale of that weekend series in Cleveland.
It was a solid outing in the win for Matt Boyd – he pitched six innings, allowing just one run on seven hits while striking out 3 and walking 2.
Catcher Alex Avila provided all of the offense that Boyd would need, with a two-run home run in the top of the 2nd inning.
The Tigers are off today.
They travel to Tampa to start a three game series with the Rays tomorrow.
