MLB – The Tigers Continue Losing Streak

Posted on April 25, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

The Tigers lost to the Indians 6 to 3 yesterday.

Detroit now has a four-game losing streak going, they have lost seven of their last nine games, and just got swept at home.

Trevor Bauer (1-0) picked up the win, allowing two runs in 3 1/3 innings of relief.

Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his sixth save.

Tyler Naquin made it 3-0 with his first career triple in the fourth, but the Tigers made it 3-2 on Nick Castellanos’s two-run single.

Victor Martinez pulled the Tigers within three with a 400-foot RBI double to center in the eighth, and Bryan Shaw walked the bases loaded with two out.

That brought Miguel Cabrera out of the dugout to a standing ovation, with Jeff Manship pitching for Cleveland.

The crowd was still on its feet when Cabrera worked a full count, but he popped a foul to first base, leading many of the fans to head immediately for the exits.

The Tigers start a four games series with the Oakland A’s tonight.

Game time is 7:10.

Jordan Zimmerman starts for the Tigers and Kendall Graveman will go for the A’s.
