Will Vest took the loss.

The Tigers visit the Athletics again today. Coverage will start at 3:45 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Brewers blasted the Marlins 16-1 last night. Milwaukee plated 12 runs in the second inning, with help from homers by Josh Donaldson and Christian Yelich, who returned to the lineup after missing nearly two weeks with back stiffness. Yelich added another home run in the sixth inning. Corbin Burnes turned in five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits.

The Cubs won, so Milwaukee’s lead in the National League Central Division remains at eight games over Chicago. Any combination of one Brewers win or Cubs loss gives the division title to Milwaukee. The victory guaranteed Milwaukee at least a wild card berth.
