SNB-Stanton Wins Twilight League Baseball Championship–Thursday Sports Wrap

The Detroit Tigers were hammered by the Texas Rangers last night 12-6, as the Tigers were swept in the three game series in Texas. The Tigers have now lost 10 of their last 12 games. Most of the scoring came off the bullpen after Anibal Sanchez left the game in the 4th inning with tightness in his hamstring.

The Tigers have today off, and open an interleague series at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers tomorrow night.

Jordan Zimmerman will start against Rich Hill. Pregame coverage begins at 7:40 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday afternoon 7-6. The Brewers scored twice in the bottom of the 8th for a come-from-behind victory.

Reliever Anthony Swarzak got the win and closer Corey Knebel earned his 24th save of the season.

The Brewers also have today off, and begin a weekend series at Colorado tomorrow night. Matt Garza will pitch against German Marquez.
