I didn’t see the game but it looks like Smyly turned a 4-2 lead over to the bullpen and the pen couldn’t hold it.
Smyly’s line looks pretty good. He went six complete allowing two earned runs on six hits. He struck out seven and walked one.
- Four runs should be good enough to win with good pitching.
- Ajax was was 1-3 with a two run homer.
- Victor had two hits.
- J.D. Martinez had a hit and two RBIs.
- Justin Miller pitched two scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and striking out two.
- The Tigers lost the game and will have to win tomorrow afternoon to split the series
- The bullpen gave up four earned runs.
- The Tigers only scored in one inning, the fourth.
- Even Reed allowed three earned runs in a third of an inning.
- Ian Krol gave up a grand slam in the seventh to Marcus Semien.
The Tigers need a shut down game from Max tomorrow to split the series.
