MLB – The Detroit Tigers Complete The Sweep Of The Chicago Cubs

Posted on August 20, 2015 in Professional Sports News.

The Detroit Tigers completed a two-game sweep of the Cubs with a 15-8 win Wednesday night in Chicago.

Starting pitcher Daniel Norris hit a two-run homerun in his first Major League at-bat in the second inning, but was pulled in the fifth with a right oblique strain.

Norris gave up three runs on four hits while striking out six in four and one third innings, while Neftali Feliz got the win in relief.

Nick Castellanos had two home runs, including a grand slam, Rajai Davis had a solo shot and J.D. Martinez added a two-run homerun in the ninth.

Detroit returns to Comerica Park tonight to host the Texas Rangers in the first of a four-game series.

In the opener, Alfredo Simon goes to the mound for the Tigers and the Rangers counter with Martin Perez.

First pitch is 7:08 p.m.
