Tiger Loss, On The Wrong Side of Major League History

Unfortunately, the story of Tuesday’s matchup, between the Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Indians was the Indians 20th straight win. Tiger pitching put up a fight, Tuesday night, but unfortunately, Tiger bats weren’t in attendance. The Tigers fell to the Indians, 2-0.

Cleveland fans were ready to cheer, especially after Matthew Boyd gave up a home run to the very first batter of the night. Fortunately, Boyd was able to dig deep and keep the Indians off the board through the next five innings. That effort included stranding three runners in both the 2nd and 3rd innings, and two 1-2-3 innings in the 4th and 5th.  In five innings of pitching, Boyd gave up one run on six hits, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Tiger bats were kept quiet for the second night in a row. This time, they settled for only five hits, and never mounted any real threat, besides a two out double by Alex Presley, in the 9th. Nick Castellanos was the most productive, in the hitting department. He went two for three, with a single and a double. The Indians added an insurance run in the 6th, after a double, a walk and a wild pitch. But, as it turns out, that run was not necessary. The Tigers lost 2-0.

The Tigers take on Cleveland again, Wednesday afternoon, where they’ll go for the record, twenty one wins. On the mound for the Tigers will be reliever Buck Farmer(6.32 ERA) and the Indians will send out Mike Clevinger(9-5  3.30 ERA). Pre-game begins at 11:45 AM. Our coverage will follow immediately after the Live With Renk Show, on 95.3 WBCK.
