The Detroit Tigers logged a loss and a win in Oakland last night.
The loss came in the completion of a game that was suspended back in May. Detroit trailed 5-3 as play resumed in the bottom of the seventh. The Athletics added two more off David McKay in the top of the ninth, to close out a 7-3 victory.
The win was a 5-4, 11-inning triumph in the regularly-scheduled contest. Willi Castro doubled home Dawel Lugo with the winning run. Starter Spencer Turnbull left as the A’s scored all four of their runs in the second inning. Seven relievers combined to give up just two more hits, and strike out 13. Detroit got two back on a Christin Stewart home run in the seventh, and tied the game when Lugo singled home two in the eighth.
The Tigers continue that series in Oakland tonight. Jordan Zimmermann will start against Chris Bassitt. Pregame coverage starts at 8:40 on 99.3 The Lift.
