Tigers Swept by Indians, Fall Into History

When sports history is made, sometimes the opposing team is completely forgotten. When the Detroit Tigers are involved in this 2017 forgettable season, they may be mentioned in tagline to a historical event. The hosting Cleveland Indians were seeking their American League-record 21st straight win in the series finale with the Motown Cats.

After making a late charge in the sixth inning, the Tigers were unable to overcome the Indians, falling 5-3 in the three-game series finale. The loss becomes the fifth straight for Detroit and eighth in their last 10 games.

Making the afternoon even longer was the absence of manager Brad Ausmus and catcher James McCann after their third-inning ejections for arguing balls and strikes.

The Tigers did provide a little more offense compared to the previous two games against the Tribe, following two straight shutouts. Nicholas Castellanos drove in a run on his two-hit day. Jeimer Candelario and Andrew Romine drove in the other two runs in the loss.

Buck Farmer took the loss on the mound for Detroit, allowing four runs in four innings. It included seven strikeouts.

The Tigers return home Thursday to open a four-game weekend series with the Chicago White Sox. Catch the action at 12:45pm on 95.3 WBCK!
