The Tigers’ bullpen faltered again last night, as Detroit fell to the Seattle Mariners 3-1. Team aces Justin Verlander and Felix Hernandez matched pitch for pitch through the first seven innings, each allowing one run. Justin Wilson relieved Verlander in the eighth. A solo home run by Nelson Cruz gave Seattle the lead. A walk and two singles gave them an insurance run, and the Tigers had dropped their fourth game in a row.
The Tigers take today off, and begin a series against the Rangers at Texas tomorrow night. Anibal Sanchez will pitch against Yu Darvish. Hear the first pitch at 8:05 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.
Cleveland also lost yesterday, so the Tigers remain three and a half games behind the Indians in the American League Central Division.
The Tigers recalled right-hander Warwick Saupold from Toledo yesterday. He’ll fill the roster spot created when center fielder Cameron Maybin was placed on the disabled list. Meanwhile, reliever Shane Greene is dealing with a posterior oblique injury. Manager Brad Ausmus says he’s giving Greene a couple of days off, hoping to avoid adding him to the disabled list. Tigers’ pitching prospect Drew VerHagen underwent surgery Monday for right shoulder thoracic outlet syndrome. He’ll miss the rest of the season.
The Milwaukee Brewers scored four runs in the third inning, and held off the Atlanta Braves 4-3 last night. Chris Carter’s three-run homer was the big blow in the inning. Chase Anderson got the win, giving up two runs while pitching into the sixth inning.
The Brewers host the Braves again this afternoon. Matt Garza will pitch against Roberto Hernández .
