Posted on August 19, 2015 in Sports News - Yooper & Michigan.

The Detroit Tigers broke open a tie game with three runs in the eighth inning and another in the ninth to hold off the Chicago Cubs, 10-8 at Wrigley Field Tuesday night.

Ian Kinsler went five-for-five with one of Detroit’s three home runs and Jose Iglesias added four hits.

J.D. Martinez and Anthony Gose both homered.

Chicago got a three-run homerun from Kyle Schwarber to help erase their deficit.

The game was stopped for more than two hours in the third inning because of rain with the Tigers ahead, 5-2.

Both teams used seven pitchers in the game.

The two teams play the final game of their short two-game series this evening in Chicago.

First pitch at Wrigley Field is 8:05 p.m.

Daniel Norris will take the mound for Detroit, up against Jon Lester of the Cubs.
