The Tigers split their doubleheader against the Guardians yesterday.

Detroit dropped the opener 4-1. The Tigers scored their only run in the first inning, and collected just three hits. Drew Hutchison pitched into the sixth, and gave up seven hits, but just one run. Will Vest took the loss.

In the nightcap, Detroit came from behind to claim a 7-5 victory. Bryan Garcia gave up three runs in the third on a couple of home runs, but hung in through six to earn the win. Detroit got one in the second on a Tucker Barnhardt single. They added two in the fifth, and took the lead with back-to-back solo homers by Jonathan Schoop and Kerry Carpenter in the sixth. Two more runs in the eighth provided the margin of victory.

The Tigers visit the Guardians again tonight. Garrett Hill will start against Zach Plesac. Coverage begins at 6:50 on 99.3 The Lift.

It was Carpenter’s first major league home run after mashing 30 in the minors this season. He added a double and a single for his first major league multi-hit game.

The Brewers got just four hits in a 4-0 loss to the Dodgers last evening. Freddy Peralta gave up one run, but lasted just four innings, and took the loss.
