The Tigers scratched out a run in the 8th and Valverde pitched around a 9th inning lead off single and stolen base to move Max Scherzer’s record to 9-0.
Donny Kelly got the the scoring started in the 2nd on a line drive to left that scored Victor Martinez.
The 8 and 9 hitters in the lineup has six of the Tigers’ 11 hits. Infante had 3, Kelly had 2 and Garcia had 1.
Alex Avila went 0-3, striking out twice and walking once moving his batting average down to .169.
I’m not sure how long the Tigers can keep throwing him out there. He is almost an automatic out.
