Erickson Crowley Peterson Wins Two – Thursday Sports Wrap

MLB: Tigers Drop Third Straight
Detroit Tigers Circle LogoThe Tigers lost their third game in a row yesterday… 2-1 to the Royals. Detroit starter Drew Smyly pitched well… giving up two runs over seven innings. Tigers’ batters could manage only five hits against K-C starter Jeremy Guthrie and three relievers. The loss dropped Detroit a game-and-a-half behind Kansas City… in second place in the American League Central. They’re just two games ahead of third-place Cleveland.

The Tigers host the Royals one more time this afternoon. It’s a make-up game for a rainout back on April 3rd. Anibal Sanchez will face Danny Duffy. Hear the first pitch at 1:08 on AM 1400, WCCY.

Brewers Fall in Ninth
Milwaukee Brewers Circle LogoTony Campana’s ground ball single in the bottom of the ninth drove in the winning run, as the Diamondbacks edged the Brewers 4-3 last night. Matt Garza pitched into the eighth inning, and gave up three runs. Two came in the first inning… and were helped in by some sloppy Milwaukee defensive play.

The Brewers wrap up that set against the Diamondbacks this afternoon. Yovani Gallardo will start against Chase Anderson.

With a number of younger players competing for roster space, club officials said they were releasing Tootoo so he could try to gain some playing time with another team.
