Home Runs by Delino Deshields and former Tiger Bobby Wilson powered the Texas Rangers to an 8 to 3 win over the Tigers in yesterday’s finale of a weekend series at Comerica Park.
The loss was the sixth in a row, and completed the second straight sweep, for the Tigers…..who now fall two games below the .500 mark.
Justin Verlander pitched well.
He gave up just 3 hits – while striking out 9 – over 7 innings.
The Tigers’ bullpen, however, did not pitch well.
Four relievers combined to give up eight runs over the eighth and ninth innings.
