The Tigers host the Orioles again tonight. Joey Wentz will start against Austin Voth. Coverage will begin at 6:45 on 99.3 The Lift.

Detroit has named Giants general manager Scott Harris as the club’s new president of baseball operations. He replaces Al Avila, who was fired last month. Harris is just 36 years old, but has built an impressive resume. He spent five years as director of baseball operations for the Cubs, and has been GM for San Francisco for the past three seasons.

Max Scherzer also tossed six no-hit innings, as the Mets dispatched the Brewers 7-2. Scherzer was pulled because of a pitch count in his first game back from the injured list. Corbin Burnes took the loss, allowing five runs before leaving in the sixth. Rowdy Tellez homered.

The Brewers host the Mets again tonight. Aaron Ashby returns from the injured list to pitch against Carlos Carrasco.
