Home runs by Akil Baddoo and Riley Greene powered the Tigers to a 5-0 victory over the Marlins Saturday. Beau Brieske made a planned two-inning start. Joey Wentz followed, turned nearly five innings, and earned the win. On Venezuelan Appreciation Day, in the city where he broke into the major leagues, Miguel Cabrera had two hits, and scored a run.
The Tigers wrap up that series at Miami today. Tarik Skubal will pitch against Jesús Luzardo. Coverage will begin at 1:15 on 99.3 The Lift.
Former Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer has been traded by the Mets to the Rangers. Scherzer agreed to opt in on the final year of his contract next season, worth $43 million. New York will cover $35 million of the remaining $58 million on the contract. In exchange, the Mets get Rangers infield prospect Luisangel Acuña, who is the younger brother of Atlanta star Ronald Acuña Jr.
Former Tigers ace Justin Verlander, who also pitches for the Mets, could also be traded before Tuesday’s deadline, as New York deals with a disappointing season.
The Brewers fell behind early, and lost 11-5 to the Braves Saturday. Julio Teheran gave up six runs in the first inning, and three more before he left the game after the fifth. William Contreras homered for Milwaukee.
The Brewers play at Atlanta again this afternoon. Colin Rea will start against AJ Smith-Shawver.
Milwaukee sent infielder Jahmai Jones down to Nashville to make room for first baseman Carlos Santana, who joined the club yesterday after being traded from the Pirates. As expected, reliever Justin Wilson was returned to the injured list. He suffered an injury while warming up to make his first major league appearance in more than a year Friday. Trevor Megill has been recalled to fill in.
