Calumet V’ball Defeats Houghton – Friday Sports Wrap

MLB – Tigers Return Tonight, Brewers Lose
The Detroit Tigers had yesterday off, and host the Kansas City Royals tonight. Justin Verlander will start against Johnny Cueto. Hear the first pitch at 7:08 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.


The Tigers have confirmed that Anibal Sanchez will not pitch again this season. However, an examination of his sore rotator cuff indicated no structural damage, and no need for surgery.

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Saint Louis Cardinals 6-3 last night. Starter Jimmy Nelson was charged with four early runs. He left the game in the third inning after being hit in the head by a line drive. He’s bruised, but otherwise okay. Milwaukee didn’t score until Jean Segura hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning. Game details are here.

The Brewers open a home set against the Cincinnati Reds tonight. Zach Davies will pitch against Brandon Finnegan.
