Nicholas Castellanos’ grand slam powered the Detroit Tigers to a 5-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays last night. Buck Farmer earned the win, giving up two runs before leaving after he allowed the first two batters in the sixth inning to reach base. He was relieved by Drew VerHagen, who got Kevin Pillar to hit a sharp grounder to third base. Jeimer Candelario fielded the ball cleanly, stepped on the bag, tossed the ball to Ian Kinsler at second, who then threw to Efren Navarro at first to complete Detroit’s first triple play since 2001.
The Tigers continue that series at Toronto this afternoon. Chad Bell will start against Brett Anderson. We’ll join the game in progress after Finlandia University football on 99.3 The Lift.
