MLB – The Tigers End Losing Skid

Posted on June 26, 2017 in Professional Sports News.

The Tigers ended an eight-game losing skid, with a 7 to 5 win over the San Diego Padres in yesterday’s finale of a week-long road trip out west.

Center Fielder Mikie Mahtook’s 2-run single in the top of the 9th was the game-winning hit for the Tigers.

Overall Mahtook was 2 for 5 with a run scored and 3 RBI’s.

 

The Tigers are now 33 and 42 on the season, and just a half-game ahead of the last-place Chicago White Sox in the Central Division.

 

The Tigers have today off before they return to Comerica Park for the start of a 10-game home stand with a 3 game series against the Kansas City Royals beginning tomorrow.
