MLB
The Detroit Tigers ended a disappointing season with a 5-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins yesterday. In what may have been his final start as a Tiger, Anibal Sanchez gave up three runs over five innings. Alex Presley homered.

The Tigers finished with a record of 64-98, tied with the San Francisco Giants for the worst record in the major leagues this season. Detroit will have the first pick in the 2018 amateur draft.

The Milwaukee Brewers scored four runs in the first inning, and wrapped up their season with a 6-1 victory over the Saint Louis Cardinals. Brett Phillips’ three-run homer was the big blow. Aaron Wilkerson pitched five perfect innings, and wound up allowing a run on two hits through seven frames.

The Brewers finished with a record of 86-76, in second place in the National League Central Division.
