Morning Sports for Monday, May 26th:

MLB: Tigers’ Woes Continue
The Ranger ripped Justin Verlander for nine runs Sunday… and pounded the Tigers 12-4. The control problems Verlander struggled with in his previous start haunted him again… as he gave up 11 hits over 5-1/3rd innings. It’s the first time in his career that he’s allowed double-digit hit totals in consecutive starts. After sweeping the Red Sox last weekend, Detroit has lost six of its last seven games.

Miguel Cabrera left Sunday’s game in the seventh inning with a cramp in his right hamstring. Joba Chamberlain was pulled after being kicked in the ankle while covering first base. Both are considered day-to-day.

The Tigers open a series at Oakland this afternoon. Drew Smyly will face Tommy Milone. Hear the first pitch at 4:05 on AM 1400, WCCY.

Brewers Dump Marlins
Jimmy Nelson earned his first major league victory Sunday, as the Brewers cruised past the Marlins 7-1. Milwaukee batters wasted no time pouncing on former teammate Randy Wolf… scoring three runs in the first inning, two in the second, and another in the third. Nelson overcame some wildness, and pitched 5-2/3rds innings of shutout ball. Ryan Braun led the offense with four hits.

The Brewers host the Orioles this afternoon. Kyle Lohse will start against Chris Tillman.

With Yovani Gallardo ready to return to the rotation, Nelson was sent back down to Nashville. Infielder Irving Falu has been brought up.

Lane is Track All-American
Michigan Tech runner Jani Lane finished seventh in Saturday’s championship race in the 1500 meter run at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Lane turned in the second-best time in school history. The finish made him the fourth All-American in Huskies’ track and field history. Don Gleneski (shot put) in 1987, Chris Klaes (3,000 steeplechase) in 1990 and Justin Blake (hammer) in 2005 were the other Tech All-Americans.

The Finlandia University men’s hockey team has added two players to next season’s roster. Walker Ensted is from Omaha. He had a 9-4 record in goal for the Marquette Royales last season, with a 3.67 goals-allowed average. Taylor Cox is from Pittsburgh, and can play all three forward positions. He may be best known for an incident in 2012 when he scored a goal for the New Jersey Titans of the Eastern Hockey League… and celebrated by jumping up against one of the glass panels at the edge of the rink. The panel shattered, and he fell through. Video of the crash was featured on SportsCenter. You can see it here.
