Mike Pelfrey’s return to the starting rotation was a brief one, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Minnesota Twins 5-1 yesterday afternoon. Pelfrey was driven from the game as the Twins scored four runs in the second inning.

The Tigers open a weekend series in Cleveland tonight. Michael Fulmer will start against Corey Kluber. Hear the first pitch at 7:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.


The Indians also lost last night, so they still lead the Tigers by six games in the American League Central Division. Any combination of 11 Cleveland wins or Detroit losses clinches the division title for the Indians. Toronto won and Baltimore lost, so the Tigers trail both of those teams by two games in the race for the final American League wild card playoff berth.

The Milwaukee Brewers edged the Chicago Cubs 5-4 last night. Keon Broxton homered. Despite the loss, the Cubs clinched the National League Central Division crown when the Giants defeated the Cardinals.

The Brewers continue that set in Chicago tonight. Chase Anderson will pitch against John Lackey.

In last night’s NFL game, Matt Forte rushed for 100 yards as the New York Jets defeated the Buffalo Bills 37-31.

On Sunday afternoon, the Lions host the Titans. Sunday night, the Packers visit the Vikings.
