Boyd, Tigers Routed – Wednesday Sports Wrap

Click on the blue links for more details.

The New York Yankees pounced on Matthew Boyd early, and routed the Detroit Tigers 13-4 last night. Boyd gave up three runs in the first inning, and left the game as New York scored four more in the third. Relievers Warwick Saupold, Drew VerHagen and Jeff Farrell each were charged with two runs. Nicholas Castellanos provided most of Detroit’s offense, with a two-run home run in the seventh, and a solo inside-the-park homer in the ninth.

The Tigers entertain the Yankees again tonight. Jordan Zimmermann will start against Luis Severino. Pregame coverage will begin at 6:45 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Milwaukee Brewers scored twice in the seventh inning, and edged the San Francisco Giants 4-3 last night. Trailing 3-2, Ryan Braun tied the game with a sacrifice fly, and Travis Shaw doubled home Neil Walker with the winning run. Right fielder Hernán Pérez threw out Nick Hundley at the plate in the eighth inning to preserve the lead. Jimmy Nelson gave up three runs over five innings. Jeremy Jeffress got the win in relief, and Cory Knebel earned his 27th save.

The Brewers conclude their series at San Francisco this afternoon. Matt Garza will pitch against Matt Moore.

The Cubs won, and the Cardinals lost, so Milwaukee remains two-and-a-half games behind Chicago in the National League Central Division. Saint Louis falls four-and-a-half off the pace.

The Detroit Red Wings may play this season without Andreas Athanasiou. Athanasiou’s agent confirmed that the forward is considering an offer to play with the KHL in Russia. Athanasiou is a restricted free agent, and has not signed an NHL contract for this season.

The Michigan Tech football team will host a scrimmage tonight at Sherman Field. Kickoff is at 7:00. The event is free and open to the public.
