The Detroit Tigers were shut out by the Chicago White Sox 2-0 last night. Matt Boyd turned in another good start, giving up two runs over seven innings. The Tigers’ offense had scoring chances in the third, fourth and seventh innings, but couldn’t take advantage.

The Tigers wrap up that series at Chicago this afternoon. Anibal Sanchez will start against Jose Quintana. Hear the first pitch at 2:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.


Cleveland also lost, so the Tigers remain four and a half games behind the Indians in the American League Central Division. Baltimore won, and holds a one-game lead over Detroit for the final American League wild card playoff berth.

The Tigers have brought Jordan Zimmermann off the disabled list. He’s scheduled to start Saturday against the Orioles. With the Toledo Mud Hens’ season over, Detroit also brought back infielder Casey McGehee and outfielder Steven Moya. Hens’ manager Lloyd McClendon has also been brought up, and will serve as a coach with the Tigers for the rest of the season.


The Milwaukee Brewers exploded for five runs in the first inning, and pounded the Chicago Cubs 12-5 last night. Jonathan Villar led off the game with a home run. Ryan Braun homered and drove in four runs. Hernan Perez had a career-best four hits. Wily Peralta gave up solo home runs in each of the first two innings, then nothing until surrendering a two-run shot before he left the game in the eighth.

The Brewers conclude their series with the Cubs this evening. Matt Garza will pitch against Mike Montgomery.

Milwaukee has bolstered its roster by calling up pitchers Taylor Jungmann and Damien Magnifico, and catcher Andrew Susac.

Our high school football coverage continues Friday evening, when Houghton entertains Ironwood. Our pregame show will begin around 6:40 on KBear 102.3 and KBear102.com.
