MLB

Eric Haase slugged two home runs, as the Tigers routed the Royals 10-2 last night. Jeimer Candelario also hit one out. Joey Wentz earned his first major league win, pitching shutout ball into the seventh, and allowing just two hits.

The Tigers continue that series at Kansas City today. Matt Manning will start against Jonathan Heasley. Because of potential bad weather the start time has been moved up, and coverage will begin at 3:50 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Brewers lost to the Reds 8-2. Jason Alexander gave up five runs in the first inning, and took the loss. Tyrone Taylor homered.

The Brewers host the Reds again tonight. Adrian Houser will start against Chase Anderson.

After leaving his start yesterday early, pitcher Freddy Peralta has been placed on the injured list with shoulder inflammation. Justin Topa has been called up from Nashville to fill in.

Major League baseball games will look different next year. The controversial infield shifts that have shut down many hitters will be outlawed. A pitch clock will be instituted to speed up games. Bases will be enlarged from 15 inches to 18 inches. The biggest surprise is that team owners have voluntarily agreed in principal to allow minor league players to unionize.
