McInstry, Short Power Tigers’ Win – Sunday Sports Wrap

Click on the highlighted scores for additional game details.


The Celtics’ comeback in the NBA Eastern Conference finals continued last night, with a narrow 104-103 victory over the Heat. Miami took a 3-0 lead early in the series, but three straight wins by Boston have tied it. The Celtics will host the deciding game tomorrow night.

The Bucks apparently have found their new head coach. Reports indicate that Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin has accepted the job. Griffin was an assistant under Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles in 2008 and 2009. He replaces Mike Budenholzer, who led the team to the best regular-season record in the league last season, but saw his team eliminated by the Heat in the first round of the playoffs.


The Stars staved off elimination in the Western Conference finals last night, with a 4-2 victory over the Golden Knights. Vegas leads the series 3-2, with game five scheduled for tomorrow in Dallas.


The Tigers used a late surge to defeat the White Sox 7-3 yesterday. Detroit grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second, as Michael Lorenzen tossed six shutout innings. Lorenzen faltered in the seventh, as Chicago scored three times off him and Jason Foley. The Tigers reclaimed the lead with three in the bottom of the seventh. Zach McInstry hit a solo home run. A two-run shot by Zack Short in the eighth sealed the win.

The Tigers host the White Sox again this afternoon. Eduardo Rodriguez will start against Dylan Cease. Coverage will begin at 1:15 on 99.3 The Lift.

The Brewers’ offense remained in its slump yesterday in a 3-1 loss to the Giants. The outage spoiled a fine outing by Corbin Burnes, who allowed a run on four hits over seven innings. Peter Strzelecki gave up two runs in the eighth, and took the loss. Milwaukee has now scored just two runs in their last 47 innings.

The Brewers entertain the Giants again this afternoon. Colin Rea will pitch against Alex Cobb.

As expected, Milwaukee placed shortstop Willy Adames on the seven-day concussion list yesterday. He was hit in the head by a foul ball while in the dugout during Friday’s game.
